Originally, this spice mix is used for shawarma, but it can be used for any grilled, roasted, or braised meat, to give that Middle Eastern flair (one of a few).
This spice mix is easy to make and it uses spices that are easy to find in any supermarket, so no reason for being lazy and not making it at home. In fact, it makes life very easy, because all you have to do is sprinkle the meat with the spice and cook it any way you want. No mess, no time waste, no effort, and delicious – what more do you want?
2 ½ tablespoons ground cumin
2 ½ tablespoons ground coriander
2 ½ tablespoons garlic powder
1 ½ tablespoons sweet paprika
