I have seen differing compositions for advieh, the Persian spice mix. Is there one you trust?

Hey Christopher! Advieh is a traditional Iranian spice mixture, with different mixtures for different dishes. Of course, every region and every family has their own distinct recipe. Here's one for seasoning rice, from the wonderful Persian cookbook, The Legendary Cuisine of Persia, by Margaret Shaida: 2 oz shelled pistachios, 1 oz cinnamon, 1/2 oz cardamom and dried rose petals, 20 strands saffron, 2 oz sugar (if using with sweet rice). Grind all together.
