Well black onion seeds are also known as nigella seeds.
In tamil it is known as  karumseeragam.
Here is the picture of  kalonji or onion seeds.

Black Bean Chili
 

3 Cups dried black beans
2 large onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
4 Tsp Cumin
1 Tbsp Sweet Hungarian Paprika
1/2 Tsp pepper
2 Tbsp Chili powder
2 tsp Oregano
1 Green Pepper, Chopped
2 can (16Oz) Peeled Tomatoes, With Juice, cut up
1 tsp Sugar
Salt To Taste
cider vinegar for sauteing

Soak the dried black beans overnight.

In large pan, saute 1/2 of the onions & 2 cloves of the garlic in cider vinegar. Once they are soft, add the black beans and 8 cups water (or enough to cover the beans by 1 inch) and the bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer 1 hour.

In a 2nd large pan, saute rest of onions until soft (again in cider/water), then add 2 cloves garlic and green pepper .. saute until the peppers get slightly soft.

Add spices (cumin, Hungarian paprika, chili, cayenne, oregano) and saute for an additional 3-5 minutes, adding more water if necessary to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Add tomatoes & their juices, sugar, and 1/2 tsp salt. Simmer for 30 min.

When the beans have simmered for 1 hr, add them to the tomato mixture. Simmer this for 30 minutes and then throw in remaining 2 cloves of minced garlic.

Stir and simmer 1-2 additional hours, leaving the cover off to get to your desired thickness/consistency.

Add more salt if you need it during this cooking stage.

Thanks Malliga.  We use thallipu alot at home.  But the mixture is mustard seed, fenugreek seeds, peria and chinna seeragam, mustard seed and urad dhall.  We never used onion seeds.  Maybe should try that.Smile
 
Thank you Netz
