I previous bought a pre-made spice blend from a health food store which I absolutely loved however its $5 per 30g which is pretty expensive so I was thinking I would try and recreate it.
The ingredients it contains are paprika, cumin, sea salt, smoked paprika, coriander seed, amchur, chili, cinnamon, coriander leaf (cilantro) and oregano.
The reason i am posting here is that when it comes to actually doing the ratio/quantities for the spices I am lost. Naturally it doesn't say how many grams of each spice there is in the packet. I thought asking here would be a good option since a lot of the people here seem to know there stuff.
I want to use this in a chili con carne sort of styled dish.
- 1kg Beef Mince
- 1 Large Onion
- 6 Garlic Cloves
- 1tsp Salt
- 1tsp Black Pepper
- 1 can Pureed Tomatoes
- 1 can Diced Tomatoes
- 2tbsp Spice Blend
I would put the tomatoes and spice mix in a slower cooker for 10 minutes while I browned the rest in a pan then I would add the meat into the slow cooker for 2 hours.
I am looking for something that isn't on the hot side since I am not the only one eating this and unfortunately the others don't appreciate hot food however when I made this with the spice blend it was very well received.
Any help with this would be much appreciated. Thanks.
