Recipe by Scots Lass/Cairo

An aromatic Persian spice blend which is good added to stews and pulses. This recipe is from " A Taste of Persia" by Najmieh Batmanglij. The author suggests adding the rose petals to the ground spices. After trying both ways, I prefer to whizz them in the spice grinder for a minute or two.

I have made this without the rose petals and with an addition of 1 tbs allspice in place of nutmeg I saw in another recipe since any amount of intoxicants is haram. I would like to try it again with the rose petals.
