After running around Kings Park, along the Swan River and up Jacob’s Ladder this morning I went to Subiaco Markets. To my delight, the Spice Library stall had advieh, a traditional Persian spice mix. I didn’t know it was called advieh until today but I certainly recognised the smell.
During my 2004 Iran holiday I bought a plastic jar of advieh from Shiraz Bazaar. After returning to Mersin I used this yummy spice mix in most meals for 3 years including pasta, roast vegetables, stir fries and curries.
The following photo I took at Shiraz Bazaar shows a man taking some advieh out of one of the two advieh mixes. I love how the different spices are layered. In the central top section of the photo are plastic jars containing advieh.
