Made with aromatic rosebuds, sweet cinnamon, and fragrant black peppercorns, this Persian spice blend is as versatile as it is flavorful.
WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS
This warm, aromatic spice mix is a staple in Persian cooking. We combined earthy cumin and cardamom to form the base of this blend. We added cinnamon for a hint of sweetness and dried rosebuds for a subtle floral aroma.
