A nice combination of spices! And I love the fennel-LOL! Made this to go into your Saudi Carrot Basmati Rice (Zainab's Mom's). Can see this also used on roasted potatoes. Thank you for posting.
On aroma alone, this gets five stars. Like Um Binat and some reviewers, I did not use the black cardamom. Otherwise, I followed the recipe, using white peppercorns instead of black (other than those inside the peppermill-out of 'em) so my mix is a paler color than the photographed ones. I did go with the fennel--love the flavor. I have smelled it and tasted it--it has a bit of a bite, the fennel is detectable but not overpowering and it's a very pleasing taste, initially and afterwards. I'm looking forward to using this in a number of things. Thanks!
I used to your recipe for your Roasted Chicken Al-Kabsa (Roasted Chicken Al-Kabsa (Saudi) (Gluten Free)). Very easy to prepare and flavorful. I renounced to the black cardamom because I didn't have.
Thanks a lot!
Very tasty blend of spices. I used in your Roasted Chicken Al-Kabsa (Saudi) (Gluten Free), but I think this would be good on fish and on buttered carrots!
I used this on rice and chicken. I lioked it quite a bit. My brother who doesn't usually prefer Middle Eastern spice mixes even liked it. I used anise instead of fennel since that was all I had and they have basically the same flavor. I thought it was good, not too strong for me though I only used a little bit of it, about a 1/2 tsp. for one serving of rice and chicken. In the past I had used a kebsa recipe but it was nothing like this and it also had loomi in it (which I don't usually have on hand) so this is an simple and different alternative. It smells strong but turns out slightly sweet and slightly spicy (depending on how much pepper you add to it.) Thanks for posting this UmmBinat.
This was an ok mix I used on a rice dish. Made for Ramadan Tag.
I left the fennel seed out because DH doesn't like it. He used this spice mix on chicken. Made for Ramadan Tag
This isn't a bad mix. I tried it on chicken tenders. Maybe just a little to pungent for me. I used ground cardamom. Thanks made for Ramadan Tag 09.
Nice combination, I followed your advice and omitted the fennel and cardamom. Fragrant, I used this to prepare your Saudi Carrot Basmati Rice (Zainab's Mom's), also a very good rice dish, we enjoyed this with a mild creamy curry. Thanks for posting! Made for I Recommend tag game
easy spice handy to have
