For most of these blends, add approximately 1 tsp-1 Tbsp of each spice; for sugar(s), measure approximately 1/4 cup into your recipe. With stronger spices like cumin and turmeric, you’ll want to start with smaller amounts so the flavor isn’t too overpowering. Try the spice blend before rubbing onto the meat to make sure the flavor is balanced. Measurements can vary based on personal preference. Salt provides flavor and sugar provides a nice caramelized finish to the meat.
