I don’t think you need any salt in this, but you might want to taste the mixture and see.

1/  Preheat the grill

2/ Using a pestle and mortar, grind all the ingredients, except the bread, to a chunky paste

3/ Slice the bread horizontally in half, all the way through

4/ Spread the spice mixture evenly over the two pieces of bread
