This Mitmita seasoning is an easy-to-make blend of dried peppers and spices that'll add heat and flavour your recipes fabulously.
Ingredients: (makes about 11-12 tbsp)½ a cup of birds eye chili peppers (about 20-25)
2 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp green cardamom pods
1 tbsp black peppercorns
1 tbsp allspice berries
1 tbsp ginger powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp whole cloves
2 tsp sea salt
2 x 3 inch pieces cinnamon
tbsp = tablespoon
Store in an airtight container out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.
Note: If you have the time, I recommend dry toasting the peppers, allspice, cumin, cardamom, cloves and peppercorns before grinding. This really enhances their flavour!
See further down the page for tips on toasting and grinding spices.
Note 2: I used birds eye peppers which are fiery. But you can use any dried pepper that you have available.

How to Toast and GrindDry 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.
