  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander

  • 1½ teaspoons Mexican chilli powder 
  1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. Transfer to a small airtight container. Store in a cool, dark cupboard.  

Tips 

  • Give your roast veggies a flavour boost by tossing them with 2 teaspoons spice blend and a drizzle of olive oil before roasting. 
  • Dust spice blend over chicken, fish or lamb before grilling or barbecuing.
