Date: Wed, 14 Aug 1996 12:02:45 GMT Roast the spices and allow to cool, grind to a powder, then add additional ingredients.
Mix spices and place in a bowl, add 6-8 fl oz (175-250 ml) of vinegar. Mix the spice into the vinegar, adding water if needed to make a creamy paste.
Let this stand for a while, ½ hour is best.
Meanwhile heat 6-8 fl oz (175-250 ml) vegetable oil. Add paste to the oil, care is needed here as it will splatter very easily. Stir the paste for about 5 mins, do not let it stick. Remove from heat and stand for 5-10 mins, if the oil rises to the top the spices are cooked, if not add more oil and cook again for a while, don't forget to keep stiring.
Bottle the paste, (sterile jars essential) and cap with hot oil. This is well worth the trouble to make and will store for a long time. It never lasts long in my house though= !!! CHILE-HEADS DIGEST V3 #073
