Kulhimas , an easy recipe

Add caption

I love Kulhimas along with roshi, but am not always up to the task of making the spice mix when following this kulhimas recipe. During the lockdown, I came up with this kulhimas recipe to go with my oats flatbreads.

Maybe you already make it like this .... I rarely do, ever since I learned the original kulhimas recipe. Anyway, let me know what you think...
