Hawaij Hot Cocoa With Cinnamon Whipped Cream
Hawaij Hot Cocoa
(The Nosher via JTA) -- Brrrr, it’s cold outside. But we know exactly what you need to warm up: some spicy, hawaij hot cocoa.
Hawaij is an important, if not nearly sacred, Yemenite spice blend. It's one of the most important ingredients in Yemenite cooking, with both savory blends using coriander, turmeric and cumin for soups, or ginger, cardamom and cinnamon for coffee. You can make your own blends or buy hawaij in specialty spice stores or online.
This hot cocoa was so delicious with cinnamon whipped cream, and it had the perfect amount of spice to warm up on even the coldest days.
