Adviyeh – Persian spice mix

Adviyeh in Farsi, also known as Adwiyah in Arabic, is a delicious spice mix used in many dishes from ground beef to vegetable stews. The mix is used in Iran, Iraq and many countries of Central Asia including Afghanistan.

One generous teaspoon of each of these spices:
– Turmeric
– Cinnamon (about half a cinnamon stick grated)
– Cloves
– Cumin
– Black pepper (crushed)
– Coriander seeds
– Sesame seeds
– The seeds from seven cardamon pods
-Plus some fresh ginger root crushed. This, I just add just before using the spice since it is a “wet” spice.

Optional: a teaspoon of dried rose petals.

Store in a sealed container for up to a month.
