  • If you have ground spices, simply mix them in a bowl. If you have whole spices, grind them in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle, mix together and keep in an airtight container.
  • If you wanted to get really adventurous, you could toast the whole spices until fragrant in a cast iron pan and then grind them to a powder. I would not toast the rose petals, dried limes or fenugreek though, as they will burn easily and ruin the mixture.


This mix smells awesome, but it smells better than it tastes right out of the jar. It'll be bitter if you just taste the raw spices, but after you make something with it, you'll be hooked!
