>white rice dotted with little black seeds that weren't onion seeds.
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
item "posto", which i believe are poppy seeds, are off-white?

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

ok tnx.
