Advieh is a persian spice mixture that is used in Persian cuisine. It is used in rice dishes as well as in stews such as advieh-e khoresh. It is hard to get an exact amount of spices that go into each mixture as they vary from region to region.But a general consensus is equal amounts of ground cinnamon, ground cardamon,ground coriander,ground cumin, and ground rose petals.Of course there are those that prefer a more "fragrant" or "spicier" advieh.
For more "fragrant" add saffron and ground pistachios. And for the "spicier", add black pepper, ground cloves, and ground turmeric as to your taste.Below is a recipe for a basic advieh.Feel free to adjust the amount of spices to suit your taste but always included dried rose petals as this is a necessary ingredient of this spice mix.
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground cardamon
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. cinammon
1 Tbsp. ground dried rose petal
- Combine all ingredients together and mix well.
