Tandoori Rub

When I was in Guadeloupe in March, I bought a variety of whole and freshly ground spices.  I just made a bowlful of Tandoori Rub.  Tandoori is a marinade traditionally used in Indian cooking.  The dry spice mix is mixed with yogurt, which is perfect for a marinade because it has a natural acidity, and is thick enough to adhere well to the meat, which keeps the spices in place.  You can also just use the spices as a plain rub.  The color of the spice mix is often very red or very yellow.  

Here is the recipe I used:

I divided the spices into little zip bags:

I placed the zip bags into these cute orange polka dot parchment bags, and I bought coordinating washi tape to seal the bags:

I made a label, adding a variety of ways to use the mixed spices:
