Dried thyme leaves ... 2 tbsps
Dried mint leaves ...... 1 tbsp
Sumac powder ........ 1 tbsp
Sesame seeds ......... 1 tbsp
Salt ...................... 1/2 tsp
These are the ingredients traditionally used to make it. But to make it a little more flavourful I also add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder and 1/2 tsp ginger powder. You can try both ways and see which you prefer.
Lightly dry roast the sesame seeds and crush them in a pestle and mortar.
Add the rest of the ingredients and crush them with the pestle to blend the flavours.
Store it in the refrigerator.
You can make more quantity and freeze it also but I avoid doing that. It looses its flavour.
Fresh is a;ways the best.
Very new and looks tasty.ReplyDelete
