DELICIOUS

Description

I use this blend in most of my lentil and bean dishes. This is a traditional spice mix used in Ethiopia. If you want to make the mixture less spicy or hot you can replace the cayenne pepper with milder chili powder.

Method:

  1. Heat the pan on a medium heat and toast all the ingredients until you get a nice toasted aroma.
  2. Cool the mixture and put in a jar.

Ingredients

1/2 cup cayenne powder
1/3 cup paprika
1.5 teaspoon ground ginger
1.5 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground fenugreek
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
