I absolutely don’t mind buying store bought spice mixes as long as the quality is okay and they aren’t loaded with sugar, modified starch and the like. I won’t pay for it and I won’t eat it!
The other day, the boys came home from the supermarket and asked me to make kebab for dinner. I usually buy kebab / shawarma spice mix at a little ethnic store close to where I live, but I had run out. So I needed to make my own spice mix in order to fulfill the very specific demand from the boys.
So I made my own spice mix and it came out really nice. Very good combination of spicy and aromatic. I love spice mixes with aromatic spices like cinnamon and ground cloves. Love!
