With mild floral notes, this blend has a slight intensity to it and is traditionally used to elevate rice dishes. With mild floral notes, this blend is a slightly more intense flavour than that of Advieh Ash - our soup blend. The combination of cinnamon, rose petals and other spices gives a beautifully aromatic and flavoursome balance.
OriginThe Advieh Berenj blend is most certainly original to the region of Persia. Persian cuisine is many things, but above all, it is colourful, rich and full of flavour. It is also simple, healthy and comforting, with recipes that have nourished and delighted for centuries. Incorporating a cornucopia of ingredients including rose petals, dried fruits and green pistachios, Persian food draws on the land’s rich natural resources and is a feast for the senses.
TasteWith the combination of Cinnamon, Rose and Cardamon, you will get a slightly intense and warming flavour. The prime flavour of cinnamon enhances the perception of mild sweetness in other ingredients. The woody, warming qualities play with the receptors on the tongue to partner with some of the other spices superbly. It draws out the floral citrusy notes of the cardamon, harmonising with the warming notes of the cumin and cloves.
ScentFloral, warming and slightly intense, you definitely detect the floral notes of the rose and the cardamon.
How to useAdvieh 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.

Some of our blends will be gluten free, but it is important to note that some spices and herbs naturally contain gluten.
It is also important to note that these have been packaged in a facility that handles, stores, and processes tree nuts and celery. This product may contain traces of celery, gluten, mustard, sesame, soy and nuts.
StorageAlways store in a dry place. A pantry, press or cupboard will suffice. We have made that easy by housing our blends in dark amber mason jars under an aluminium lid. Aluminium reflects both heat and light, making it the perfect material for food preservation under its closing. Spice and herb blends typically have a use by date, in our case, 24 months from manufacture.
