Advieh, Spice Mix

Advieh or Adwiya is a spice blend used in  Persian Cuisine.

Basic Advieh blended powder

It is a blend of their many aromatic spices from Saffron, cinammon, ginger powder, cardamom, cumin, nutmeg, mace and pepper. Different Advieh blends are used in their meats, chickens, fish and rice. It is available in most Middle Eastern Stores and many super markets in the UK. 

It may perhaps be best to make your own basic blend and then add more ingredients as and when necessary.

2 tbsp freshly ground cumin
Mix and keep in an airtight jar for a year. Store in a cool dry place.

Optionally add in 2 tbsp  each of black pepper and clove.  Just 1 tbsp nutmeg - to make it the 7 spice advieh
