Hararat Version 1 - Libyan Spice Blend

“This is a common seasoning in Libya. I was surprised that there isn't a recipe for it on zaar (though it could have another name...I'm certainly no expert). I found this recipe online (http://www.celtnet.org.uk/recipes/miscellaneous/fetch-recipe.php?rid=misc-hararat). I must admit that I have never made this before - and that this particular recipe is a bit annoying as you have to grind everything in a spice/coffee grinder or I suppose a mortar and pestle if you're ambitious. I am posting a different version that uses pre-ground spices. Feel free to multiply this recipe to make any amount you wish.”
