Both the slightly larger, oilier, bluish black poppy seeds and the smaller, creamy white poppy seeds have a sweet, pleasant aroma and mild, nutty taste. Blue poppy seeds are strong in flavor, especially after toasting, and are popular in eastern Europe, Holland, Germany, ans Austria, where they appear in stollen, tortes, dumplings, Bohnemian kolache, and noodle casseroles. White poppy seeds are prized for their thickening properties, especially for creamy Moghul-style Indian korma sauces.
