I'm trying to replicate the spice mix used for Döner Kebab. I am interested in spice combinations from any area. However, I am most interested in which spices are used to prepare it around western Germany or more specifically near Ruhr University.
I've looked far and wide and tested many concoctions of herbs, spices and ingredients. I've pinned down a few spices that to me makes very tasty, nearly authentic Döner Kebab at home: onion, rosemary, and marjoram (or oregano as a possible substitute, but preferably not). Possibly a bit of cumin but not a lot.
I'm already familiar with the meats and process used; I'm particularly interested in just the primary flavoring ingredients, so that I can finally pin down the most authentic flavor possible.
