This is a simple Moroccan blend that can be used instead of using store-bought blends. For more complex Morrocan flavours try my Ras el Hanout blend.
: Makes approximately 1 small jar. : Easy
: 5 min : 5 min : 10 min
- 3 tablespoons ground cumin
- 1 ½ tablespoons mild paprika
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
- 1 ½ tablespoons ground turmeric
- ½ tablespoon chilli powder
I personally like to buy all my spices whole (seeds, pods, etc) roast them in the oven to release their flavours and oils and then grind them using a spice blender.
However, you can just mix the ground versions and roast in a hot oven until fragrant (or if you are short on time no you can skip the roasting up the flavours will not be as intense).
Then all you have to do is mix all the spices together until well combined and store in a glass jar.
If you just want to make a small amount just use teaspoons instead of tablespoons, this will make 2 tablespoons.
