Thanks to Lita Lotzkar for sharing this recipe. This mix is used in many African recipes. See the one for Ethiopian Lentils.
There are two ways to make this - with whole spices that you grind,
or with powdered versions of the spices. The first way gives you a more
powerful flavor, but it may be more practical the second way, particularly
if you don't have a spice grinder.
Berbere Spice Mix
1. Toast all the seeds and whole cloves in a small frying pan for 2 minutes, stirring constantly (open window or turn on the stove vent--it can smoke). Grind the spices in a spice grinder. If you are using pre-ground spices, ignore and go on to the next step.
2. Mix all remaining ingredients.
Place in a tightly covered container and refrigerate. This mixture can
used with many combinations of legumes, rice or vegetables.
