oh, maybe "kala jeera"?
did they look like this:
i personally think "nigella bites". not a big fan.
BTW, this might be sort of an ignorant question, but
how come poppy seeds "here" are black, but the bengali

is it a different kind of plant or one is treated somehow ...
husked, bleached, cooked etc?
