Chermoula spice mix

Person Author: Maaike Calender November 22, 2014 Posted No Tags Comment No Comments

I made my own spice mix as I found loads of versions on the internet, and they vary greatly from region to region. I HATE coriander leaf, as to me it tastes like dishsoap, so I went towards the Maroccan style which uses dried parsley instead. I combined all kinds of spices I like from different recipes I found on the great wide web.

You need:

2 tablespoons of  ground cumin

1 tablespoon of ground coriander (seeds are fine no soap taste 😉  )

1/2 teaspoon of chilli or cayenne pepper, or more if you like things hot

2 tablespoons of mild paprika

3/4 teaspoon of ginger powder (again the fresh stuff..urgh…ground up dried stuff…fine)

1 teaspoon of turmiric

1 tablespoon or dried parsley, could be fresh if yo use it immediately

1/4 teaspoon ground up cloves

1/4 teaspoon ground up bayleaf

1/2 lemon, peel zested

1/2 teaspoon of garlicpowder

pinch of saffran

1 tablespoon of salt


mix everything together and keep in an airtight container.

Will serve 2 kilos or chicken drumsticks
