1 teaspoon of ground coriander

1 teaspoon of ground cumin

In a mixing bowl, combine finely chopped onion, minced garlic, ground black pepper, ground coriander, ground cumin, and salt. Rub the seasoning mixture onto the horse meat, ensuring it is evenly coated. If using natural horse casing, stuff the seasoned meat mixture into the casing and tie the ends securely.
