Ras El Hanout

One of my favourite spice blends, Ras el Hanout can be used in any number of Middle Eastern dishes.  I am not Middle Eastern so my interpretation of how it is used is probably not traditional but hey…..if it tastes great, I’m onto it!

 

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 tsp ground allspice

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp ground ginger

2 tsp ground turmeric

2 tsp ground black pepper

2 tsp ground cardamom

3 tsp ground cinnamon

3 tsp ground coriander

2 freshly grated nutmegs or 6 tsp ground nutmeg

Throw all the spices in a jar, give a good shake and Mohammeds your uncle!
