Khmeli Suneli (Georgian Spice Blend)
This traditional Georgian seasoning is often sprinkled over vegetable dishes such as pkhali, spinach-and-walnut pâté garnished with pomegranate seeds, and badrijani nigzvit, garlicky eggplant rollups stuffed with walnut paste. But truth be told we love its complex, earthy, and savory flavor on everything. Think of it as a curry powder of the Caucuses.
Khmeli suneli is best when made with freshly ground spices, so invest in an inexpensive grinder and process only what you will consume within a few months.
