Top Review by Hajar Elizabeth

This is good for adding flavor to western cooking, however, authentic happens also to be very palatable. I used this for BBQ chicken, marinated and glazed with a bit in the oven, and and it was slightly overpowering. I think I'd cut back next time on the world tour of spices and limit to 3 for my tastes.
