A wonderful blend of Middle Eastern spices. I am so pleased to have a supply of ras el hanout on hand. Thanks so much for posting.

This is really great! I can't wait to find more ways to use it. I know versions of this can include a list of spices a mile long, so this was just about right...had everything in the pantry already. Thanks for posting! ZWT6

This is lovely and fragrant as I toasted the cumin and would do the same to the other spices next time. I did not use nutmeg as it is an intoxicant and "Every intoxicant is haram. Something that intoxicates only when consumed in large quantities, is not allowed to be taken even in a lesser quantity." I used white sugar left out the cayenne and cloves out of preference. I can't wait to try this in different recipes. So far I have used this spice mixture in Moroccan Ground Beef Kebab / Skewers which was very delicious! Made for Ramadan Tag.

Great spice mix! Rich and warm and just spicy enough. I used this in your Moroccan Ground Beef Kebab / Skewers and I think it will be great on chicken and pork as well. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Loved the deep, complex aroma that came from this mixture as I blended it together. I used it to make burgers from your kebab recipe, and I am very glad I did. I am also glad I made a lot more -- I used tablespoons for all measurements instead of teaspoons, so now I have this wonderful spice mix in my pantry to use again and again.

Really a wonderful spice mix. We used last night in Moroccan Ground Beef Kebab / Skewers but love the suggestion to use on chicken which I think I will do later this week. We have an awful lot of spice mix to use up and I'm not exactly sure what to do with it just yet. EDITED TO ADD: I put this rub on a pork roast tonight for Easter dinner and it is out of this world.

I halved this recipe because I wasn't sure what to expect, but wish I'd doubled it instead. I love the way the flavors blend and present themselves.

I used this to rub on some chicken to bake in the oven. The blend of flavors both spicy and sweet were very nice on the chicken. We really enjoyed having a new chicken recipe to try. We will have this again, and I may try it on pork the next time! Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe with us Nasseh! Made for Zaar Stars 1/08 Linda

Such a rich and complex mix! I used this to make Chicken & Lentil Tagine (Lentil & Chicken Tagine). Could be added to many things to add depth and intensity to the flavor.
