This spice mix always interested me so much that I like to mix into ground beef for "kofta" kebabs then grill the meat over the nice hot charcoal. Got good praises from my family--my wife always asked me for the recipe so she can share with her office buddies at her work. It is very simple recipe better than getting a package from store. It made my work very easy by knowing how much spices I put together then mix some into ground beef or sprinkle over the chicken, or add flavor to soup.
According to some websites, that I researched on Ras el Hanout and found out much about spice mix. I was told that there are 40 spices mixed together and other there are about 12 spices mixed together. Who is perfect? Which is right? I like to be more informed than nothing at all. More informed, I will be able to "play" with spice mixes. I like to play with food while no one told me not to play with....
