The first time I had a similar dish, was in a Thai restaurant in Hong Kong. I was blown away by the mix of flavors and wanted to recreate it at home.

1 jalapeno cut in rounds with seeds
1 chilli pepper cut in rounds with seeds

1 tsp caraway seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp coconut sugar
