Editor's Note: If you only thought you could purchase pre-made seasonings, you'll think again when you see this easy recipe for Cumin-Coriander Powder! The easy seasoning recipe uses just two ingredients and won't take long to prepare, either. The result is a taste that is quite different from a prepackaged box of seasoning that may have been sitting on the grocery store's shelf for months. This powder can be used in a number of different dishes, including the author's recipe for Saffron Rice with Meatballs. You will love having a jar of this seasoning on hand!

Another versatile all-purpose spice blend, this powder can definitely be created by mixing pre-ground cumin and coriander powders, but please do take the time to grind these spices yourself—your taste buds will thank you.
