Ras el Hanout is different per region,everyone has their own blend. This one is great with the execption of the amount of cinnamon. I cut it back to 1/4 teaspoon and added 1/2 teaspoon cardamon and 1/4 ground bay and if you really want a kick 1/2 teaspoon of chinese 5 spice. Read More

This was really good. I used it in a lamb recipe from this website and it turned out great. I left the white pepper out bc I didn't have it on hand but my dish didn't seem to miss it. Great combo of flavors. Read More

This is similar to Dukkha, an Egyptian spice mix consisting of roasted brazil nuts, roasted sesame seeds, cumin seeds and coriander seeds, all ground a bit, with cinnamon, salt and ground black pepper. Dukkha is proof that we are meant to be happy! Read More

I had most of the ingredients already, so it was nice being able to make this combination. I did reduce the amount of cinnamon as someone else suggested to 1/4 tsp and (though I've never even had it before) and it was perfect to my tasing (and I love cinnamon) I think anything more would have overpowered the other spices. Also used cumin seed as I didn't have gound (or so I though- found some after!) I plan on making this spice in a big batch and give some for Xmas! Read More
