Even though I've seen these spices in other cuisines, for some reason they are absolutely delicious in this combination and proportion. I used it to season cauliflower and sweet potato chunks I was roasting. I stirred it into some rice also. Then I stirred it all together.

I have no reference for comparing this mixture to other recipes, but it worked out really well in this main dish: Chicken Kabouli (Muscat Style). There's a little bit left and I will try it on roasted cauliflower in the next few days. Reviewed for NA*ME Explores Oman.

This mix is on a website proclaiming to be an "Omani Kitchen", so it appears to be authentic. This was much milder than I expected; perhaps I need fresh spices. I used this in Chicken Kabouli (Interior Style).
