1 tbsp cayenne pepper
4 tsp dried parsley
4 tsp dried bell peppers (optional)
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp paprika powder
2 tsp celery seeds
2 tsp salt
6 dried bay leaves

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the bay leaves with the bell peppers (if using), cumin and celery seeds, salt and peppercorns

  • Once ground add to a bowl

  • Add the paprika, cayenne, onion and garlic powders to the bowl and combine

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
