  1. I actually made some of this today, following this recipe. I ground up the cumin and coriander seeds by hand and then mixed them with the other spice that I bought ready ground. I then sprinkled it on some tuna steak before cooking it on a griddle.

    It tasted amazing! Not at all hot and spicy but smokey and exotic! Or maybe that’s just because I made it myself!

    1. I’m not sure, but everything tends to taste better, differently when we make it ourselves!

      I have tried Shawarma spice mix in the past, but tend to stay away from it now because it has a tendency to make me ill.
