EAST COAST GRILL MASALA
`Known at the East Coast Grill as our own special masala, this mixture is the base seasoning for many of the dishes that we cook.
I particularly like to use it on things that fly or swim.'
1/4 cup ground cumin
1/4 cup prepared curry powder
1/4 cup chili powder
2 tablespoons ground allspice
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons freshly cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Mix ingredients together well. Rub over entire surface of food, using a bit of pressure to make sure a good layer adheres to food. (Rub may turn dark brown during cooking.)
Covered and stored in a cool, dark place, this rub will keep for 6 weeks. Makes about 1-1/4 cups.
