Traveling through China, you might stumble upon a person donning a white skull cap toting a BBQ grill sometimes by bicycle. He sells lamb kabobs spiced with irresistible goodness that it's hard to have just one. The person is from Western China, a predominantly Muslim region with cultures blended from Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and others in the region. This spice mix is a great ingredient to have around for sautés, roasts, BBQ's or whatever else you feel like adding some Western China spice to. If you're in China, you can buy a packet in your grocery store.
