From the Test Kitchen

*

Ras el hanut is a spice blend common in North African and Moroccan cuisines. Specialty and well-stocked grocers now carry this popular spice blend, but If you have trouble finding it you can make your own. In a bowl combine 1 tsp. paprika, 1/2 tsp. ground cumin, 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground coriander, 1/4 tsp. ground ginger, 1/4 tsp. black pepper, 1/4 tsp. ground turmeric, and 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper.
