2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Cumin Seeds
1 teaspoon Fennel Seeds

In a dry pan, on medium heat, toast the cumin seeds, fennel seeds, whole black peppercorns and coriander until aromatic approximately one minute. Let cool for a few minutes and crush the spices in a spice grinder or with the back of a French knife adding the salt and thyme.
