Indian-Style Spice Rub
Heat a dry medium skillet over medium heat. Add cumin seeds, coriander seeds, mustard seeds, peppercorns, cloves, and crushed red pepper. Toast for 1 to 2 minutes or until the mixture is fragrant, lightly toasted, and starting to crackle, stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet and let cool for 5 minutes.Advertisement
