*Hawaij (a.k.a. Hawayej or Hawayij) is a Yemenite spice blend primarily used in soups. Ingredients may include: cumin, black pepper, turmeric, cardamom, ground cloves, caraway, nutmeg, saffron, coriander and ground dried onions.
Another blend of the same name is used in coffee and tea.
How to make it
Combine all ingredients in pressure cooker. Top with water. Secure lid.
Bring to pressure and cook on high for 45 minutes.
Let the pressure cooker sit for 5 minutes. Carefully carry the cooker to the sink and run very cold water onto the top to bring the pressure down. You'll hear the valve make a big sigh. When it's safe to remove the lid, lift it off.
Be careful b/c the bones are tender from the pressure cooking. Try to pick them out as serving.
