Ras el Hanout spice mix

Ras El Hanout

Ras el Hanout is a North African (Moroccan) spice mix that translates as “top of the shop”. There is no definitive mix of spices and each store in the souk (market) takes pride in creating their own blend. This version leaves out some of the more exotic spices, and favours a blend that is easy to find in most supermarket aisles.

  • 2 teaspoons ground cardamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground mace
