Ras El Hanout - Moroccan Spice Blend

Ras el hanout,is a versatile and beautifully fragrant Moroccan spice blend commonly used in Moroccan cuisine.

这种香料混合物的起源很古老,但你可以通过简单地翻译ras el hanout来理解它的用途。”Ras el Hanout"means"店顶in Arabic,this suggests that the spices used for the blend are the finest spices available in the merchant's shop.

This also means that there is no final 必威特别投注recipe for this mix.The most commonly used ingredients are:

小茴香籽

豆蔻豆荚

Cinnamon sticks

Dried Ginger

Coriander seeds

Nutmeg

八角茴香

丁香

姜黄

Interestingly,ras el hanout shows how Morocco's historical and cultural background has impacted Moroccan cuisine.The majority of the spices used in this blend don't originally come from Morocco.今天,在调料中可以使用多达60种香料或更多,这意味着不同家庭的食谱有很大不同。必威特别投注Some blends might include dried rosebuds or fennel seeds and others some more exotic ingredients such as galangal.

One of the reason I love ras el hanout is because it literally goes with everything and gives a delicious and aromatic Moroccan kick to any savory dish.

Today you can find ras el hanout blends in many supermarkets (in London!) however it is very easy to prepare and there's nothing like a fresh spice blend.

The 必威特别投注recipe I am sharing with you is a basic one - with some of my favourite additions - so feel free to customize your ras el hanout by adding the equivalent of a teaspoon of any spice that will make your taste buds happy!!
