Carol Cook’s …My favourite spice mixes.

Welcome to this week’s Cookery column …This week I thought I would share with you some of my go to recipes ones which I make on a regular basis. My staples really I suppose ones, which I make quite often as they are family favourites.

As you know I mostly cook from scratch and it is something I have always done. Now more than ever as there are so many additives in products on the shelf.

Much of the time I either can’t get what I want here, or as it is imported, it is silly prices, but also because of all the negative articles about processed and manufactured food stuff.  I prefer to make my own as I know what it contains …So much now is laden with added sugars and preservatives that it is quite scary, and also increasing evidence that many…

Homemade Fajita Seasoning.

Spice mixture for fish curry

I love nothing better than seeing my spics all measured out and ready to mix into a beautiful fajita mix or a curry the smell is awesome.

My homemade Fajita mix … was always very popular when we had our restaurant in Phuket.

Since living here in Thailand there are a lot of foodstuffs which I used to buy and can no longer buy as no one stocks them here. Some I get bought over by visitors others I have learnt to substitute with another vegetable or product or make it myself.

I have also been very surprised at…..

1. How easy some things are to make.

2. How little they cost for a larger portion and no nasties.

Hence this Fajita Mix was born...You just measure out your ingredients and mix together, put in an airtight container and voila…Done!

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp Cornstarch.
  • 2 tbsp Chilli Powder.( I use dried chillies ground to a powder)
  • 1 tbsp Salt.( I use Himalayan pink salt or mineral salt which is produced locally)
  • 1 tbsp Sugar.
  • 1 tbsp Paprika
  • 2 1/2 tsp Powdered chicken stock/seasoning.
  • 1 1/2 tsp Onion Powder.
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder.
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper.
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder.

Let’s Cook!

Mix together and seal in a container. This makes equivalent to 3 packets of Fajita Mix.

It is also very easy to double the quantity.

To keep this mix as natural as possible I dry my own onions and garlic to make into a powder and buy organic powders where I can if I cannot make them myself.

 

How easy is that???
