This is a light, tangy, highly seasoned slaw made with cabbage and a homemade spice blend.
Home Spice Mix Ingredients:
¼ cup coriander seeds
¼ cup cumin seeds
¼ cup mustard seeds
Home Spice Mix Instructions:
In a small skillet, combine the coriander seeds, cumin seeds and 2 tablespoons of the mustard seeds. Toast over moderately high heat, shaking the pan, until the seeds are fragrant and lightly colored, about 2 minutes. Transfer the seeds to a plate.
When the toasted seeds have cooled, transfer them to a spice grinder and grind to a coarse powder, and then stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of whole mustard seeds.
