Heat a well-seasoned cast-iron Dutch oven over a good campfire or stove burner (medium high heat, if controllable). Toast grains, salt, and nigella seeds until grains begin to brown. Add water, stir, and turn heat down to low (or move to lower part of fire). Place lid on and don't even peek for about 20 minutes. Grain is done when all water is absorbed and fluffs well with a fork.
This is a great low-maintenance dish to accompany grilled fish needing more attention.
