The woody qualities play with receptors on the tongue to partner with some of the other spices superbly. It draws out the floral citrusy notes of rose, warmly harmonising with cumin and turmeric.

Perfect For

Rice Couscous Quinoa. Recipes for inspiration are Chelo, Kateh or the more familiar Tahdig (fluffy buttery Persian crispy rice) which is a result of the golden crust formed at the bottom of the rice pot.

How to Use

Advieh Berenj literally means “spice rice”. From the clue that is in the title, this Persian blend, is excellent for adding a new dimension to rice dishes. Full of flavour, it is certainly a seasoning you could try on the whole family, children included. Exclusively it is used to elevate and add a complexity to plain white rice dishes. Add 1-2 teaspoons to your rice/pilaf dishes either while cooking, steaming or just before serving. The combination of the cinnamon and the rose petals and the other spices gives a beautiful flavoursome zing. We would encourage you to explore beyond rice and maybe combine with some natural yogurt and use as a subtly spiced chicken marinade and cooked with rice in one pot. You could also use it on rice stuffed vegetables with some olive oil and salt or as a way to create an exciting new flavour for cauliflower rice dishes, as well as lentils and couscous.
