Advieh (Persian: ادویه) is a spice mixture used extensively in Persian rice and meat dishes to add warm spice, sour and floral notes.
There are literally thousands of different versions of Advieh made in homes and restaurants in Iran (altered to individual taste and dependent on what dish it’s being used in).
This is my personal recipe for Advieh-e khoresh – used in stews or as a rub for grilled or roasted meats. It works admirably in either capacity, Citizens: be creative in its use and you will be rewarded with a uniquely delicious result!
