This spice mixture is from Tunisia, where it is used to spice up stews and is sprinkled over grilled meats. The word tabil means coriander, but generally refers to this blend of ingredients.
- 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
- 1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 teaspoon dreid crushed chile, such as piquin
In a mortar, combine all ingredients and pound into a paste. Dry the paste on a plate in a 200 degree (fahrenheit) oven for about 1/2 hour. In a spice mill, grind the dried paste to a fine powder.
