Preparation method

  1. Place all the ingredients in a metal frying pan and place over gentle heat. Cook until the seeds begin to pop in the pan. Toss as they start to pop and cook for a couple more minutes, taking care not to let them burn.

  2. Remove from pan and grind the mixture in a coffee grinder, mini food processor or pestle and mortar while still warm.

  3. Store in an airtight container for one to two weeks.
