For those of you who know our popular ‘Balmain & Rozelle Spice Blend’, it’s having a name change to ‘Sydney Spice‘. We feel this blend represents the vitality and diversity of our great home city, with a combination of spices including kaffir lime, lemon myrtle, turmeric, cumin, ginger, caraway and chilli. It pairs wonderfully with vegetables and seafood in particular.


If Beluga lentils aren’t available, omit altogether or use another small nutty pulse.
