Buying any kind of spice mixes in the supermarket is very tempting at some times. But it's super easy and tastier to create your own! Especially when you already got a cabinet filled with all kinds of spices. And if you don't got them already, there are a lot of other kinds of recipes you can use all those spices for. For example a vegetarian bean stew or homemade piccalilli. Give it a shot, you'll discover a whole new world of flavor to amp up your dishes when you use a mix of herbs.

You can buy all those spices in most supermarkets, or else it's worth a trip to an Asian supermarket. You can buy ground spices, or use a pestle and mortar to grind them yourself. Mostly to grind the cumin and coriander seeds. The best way to do this is by a grind and press movement at the same time. Grind until you end up with a smooth spice mix.
