I am taking part once again in The Recipe Hunters monthly Challenge and it is any recipe with F in the title. So my homemade Fajita mix it is..which 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!
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.
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.
