So what exactly is Berbere Spice Mix?

Marcus Samuelsson says its one of the three building blocks of Ethiopian cuisine.

This recipe is Marcus's recipe from his book, "The Soul of a New Cuisine".

Berbere Spice Blend

1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
1/2 cup ground dried serrano chiles or other ground dried chiles
1/2 cup paprika
2 tbsp salt
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp ground cardamom, preferably freshly ground
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground all spice

finely grind the fenugreek seeds with a mortar and pestle or an electric spice or coffee grinder (I used our magic bullet). Stir together with the remaining ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. Store in air tight container in fridge for up to 3 months.
