this is quite similar to zatar we have in Kuwait minus Olive oil. Olive oil is served on the side. You simply get a piece of arabic bread, roll it up, dip in olive oil then in the dry mixed spices (zatar) so it sticks to the bread and enjoy!

hi what are serranos?
post #5 of 12
Serranos are a medium hot chili, CCFly, measuring from 10,000 to 20,000 SHUs.

For perspective, Jalapenos run upwards from 2,500 to 10,000 SHUs, mostly on the lower end of that range.

Bombay Ben, I thought Zataar was based around sumac and wild thyme???

yes sumac and wild thyme and a few other things but above recipe is not exactly like zatar - I was just drawing a comparison! apologies for misleading! I can be pretty vague at times!

thanks all,

The tastes of zhoug you mention in the green masala

Zhoug is not like zaatar

Zaatar is 1 part Thyme, 1 part sesame and a 1/4 part Sumac( Majorana Syriaca or Syrian marjoram ) and salt to
taste.

I stand corrected! and thanks for that - so to reiterate what Mezzaluna asked before - how would we treat Zhoug?

That sounds amazing. I think I would throw in some extra serranos......

These would make a fabulous roasted potato dish.
