    Don't bother. The cinnamon is so overpowering that its all you taste. Pretty one dimensional. Plus, its too confusing to your pallet. I kept tasting apple pie spices but trying to make it right on the meat. It didn't work.  -  11 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I got this recipe from a Indian friend of mine. I really enjoy it on lamb.  -  22 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a really good starting point. I didnt measure anything. I used my judgement as to how much I wanted of each spice and went from there. It turned out great! I used it as a rub for some gyros and it was delicious. I still have some left over to use again.  -  19 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
