  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 4 whole cloves
  • teaspoon cardamom seeds
  • teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • teaspoon whole allspice
  • 1 teaspoon whole fenugreek seeds
  • cup dried onion flakes
  • 3 ounces red New Mexican chilies, stemmed and seeded
  • 3 small dried long hot red chilies, seeded
  • teaspoon ground ginger
  • teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • cup salad or peanut oil
  • cup dry red wine
  • Cayenne pepper to taste

  • How To Cook:
    1. Mix together the cumin, cloves, cardamom, black peppercorns, allspice, and fenugreek seeds. Place in a small frying pan over medium heat.

    2. Stir constantly until they release their fragrance, about 1 to 2 minutes. Do not burn or discolor the spices. Cool completely.

    3. Combine the toasted spices and all the other ingredients, except the oil and the wine, in a spice grinder or electric coffee grinder and grind fine in batches.

    4. This may take a few minutes. Keep your face away from the machine as it will release a very spicy aroma that may irritate your eyes or throat.

    5. Place the spice blend in a bowl and add the oil and wine. Add cayenne pepper to taste. Stir until thick and store in a closed plastic container in the refrigerator.
