    alAmira's Note:

    For anyone who desires an authentic taste of the mid east. This recipe was learned by watching a good friend of mine in Jordan when she was grinding her family's monthly supply.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Basically, just place all the spices except the paprika and nutmeg in a blender or adequate grinder and process until it becomes a powder.
    2. 2
      If necessary you can grind 1/2 cup at a time.
    3. 3
      Grate the nutmeg and blend this with the paprika into the spices.
    4. 4
      Store in an airtight jar.
    5. 5
      Generally in some areas, they lightly toast the spices in an oven to bring out more flavor.
    6. 6
      You can gain this also by putting the amount you're going to use, on a hot dry frypan and toast it for a few seconds before using.
    7. 7
      This not only makes the kitchen smell good, but brings out a richer flavor of any spice.
    8. 8
      *Note* You can also use ground spices, but using them whole is the authentic way.
    9. 9
      Four nutmegs come to about 1/4 cup ground.
    10. 10
      Be careful how much nutmeg you use; it's toxic in large doses.

      Excellent blend of spices. Love the amount of nutmeg! (I did cut recipe in half, though). I used it in Roasted Chicken Al-Kabsa (Saudi) (Gluten Free). I think this would be good on fish, also!

      I was making Roasted Chicken Al-Kabsa (Saudi) (Gluten Free) and needed this spice mix. It gave the chicken a wonderful flavour. I cut it short and used already ground spices.

      This is a staple in my cupboard. I omit the nutmeg though because it is an intoxicant and therefore it is not halal. I add less allspice in it's place. I use whole spices and toast them in a dry pan before grinding them. This gives off a wonderful aroma. Definitely using whole spices as well as toasting them gives a better flavour than any store bought version of this mix.
