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.
Nice flavor and useful mix. I've prepared this for the Roasted Chicken Al-Kabsa (Saudi). I've reduced all the amounts, because I't easy to prepare fresh one when I need it. Thanks!
Loved the flavor! I used ground spices as that was what I had on hand.
This was Wonderful!I am so glad I came across this.Thnax :)
I was trying to copy a favorite dish from a local mid-east deli & couldn't get the spices right until I found this recipe!! It's fantastic!!
usedfor Easy Saudi Kabsa (Zainab's) (Gluten Free) very handy to have
Made as directed in batches in my spice-dedicated coffee grinder. Referred to by UmmBinat's Saudi Tahini & Tomato Chicken for Saudi Tahini & Tomato Chicken. Thanks, alAmira for a great spice recipe!
How much nutmeg is too much---you've just instructed a few million people to put FOUR whole nutmegs in this recipe!
