Hi. I cannot fing fenugreek in my local grocery store. Is it necessary in this spice mix or can it be omitted? Thanks a lot. Anna

Hey, Anna, you can omit them if needed. In case it helps, we've had better luck finding dried fenugreek leaves in the international aisle or in ethnic grocery stores. An alternative dried leaf such as celery also provides a similar savoury and nutty flavour 🤗

Such a handy spice mix! I've been adding it to curries and it's perfect. It beats measuring out spices one at a time when I'm tired and just want food in my belly as quick as possible 😂

So glad it's being enjoyed, Amelia 😃
