Hindi term or phrase: Kashmiri Ver
It is used in cooking. I think it's a spice. The word is probably Indian-origin (not sure abt the etymology, but it IS used in Indian/kashmiri dishes).
What is the English for it ? If there is no correct/exact English for this, then can you please descibe it for me ?

Kashmiri Ver
Explanation:
"Kashmiri Ver is an unusual spice mixture, in the form of small flat discs. It is a special blend of spices and comes in the form of flat round tikkas with a hole in its center. It is prepared in a manner unique to each household and is used in small amounts over many foods to give them a perceptibly Kashmiri flavor. The distinct flavor of Kashmiri dishes come from this dried spice paste and the common ingredients are chillies, coriander, cumin, cloves, ginger, turmeric, and cardamom."
