Tsire spice

Dave Mathews


This is a little different North African spice. It has peanuts in it and adds a whole other dimension to your food. Give it a try.

10 Min


No-Cook or Other


1 1/2 c
peanuts, roasted
1 1/2 tsp
chilli powder
1 1/2 tsp
ground ginger
1/2 tsp
ground nutmeg, fresh
1/2 tsp
ground cloves
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon

Directions Step-By-Step

Place the peanuts into a food processor and pulse till you get small peanut bits. You are looking for small enough bits to make this a spice mixture not spiced peanuts.
Throw in all the rest of the ingredients into the food processor and pulse until fully mixed. Store in an air tight jar for up to a month. You can freeze this too. The peanuts will go bad after a while so be careful.
Tip. The dryer the peanuts the better. Dry roasted works here but the taste is not the same. If you get wetter peanuts roast them a little longer, say 20 minutes in the oven at 250 degrees. Don't burn them just get the water out.
