Ayurvedic Spice Mix

This is a wonder! I found it when researching Ayurvedic allergy remedies, and it seems to be a classic mix of ground spices that are absolutely delicious for cooking. I can't tell that it has helped my allergies, but it has been excellent for adding to stir fried veggies, pasta dishes, and soups. I use about 1/4 teaspoon per serving.

6 parts cumin
6 parts coriander
4 parts turmeric
1 part ginger
1 part black pepper

Note: most versions of this recipe call for 6 parts fennel as well, but... ahem... I'm allergic to fennel. And I wouldn't like the taste with fennel, anyway.

You can find a recipe using this spice mix here: Spiced Carrots.
