Pan toasting with no oil is called for in some recipes in some Arabic language recipes. I'll have to look to see which cookbook.

In Isfanah Mutajjan the ground spices are fried in oil, but there are no herbs in the recipe, well, other than the spinach. So this doesn't address the issue of frying herbs in hot oil.

Urtatim (that's err-tah-TEEM)
