This is one of my favorite condiments and because I like it, you must like it. It is very versatile and keeps for a while in the refrigerator. It is of Moroccan origin and you can even add a bit of tomato sauce to it. If I remember, the traditional recipe is supposed to have some tomato in it.
Sorry everything is in weights but finding a small scale should be no problem if you go to your local shopping mall and they are not expensive. If you have problems call me and I will fly over and give personalized service

I recommend you marinade whatever you are going to cook first with this. Just put enough to coat the food item. Then cook.
One note: If you are going to saute your food item I DO NOT recommend marinating the item first because the spices can burn. Simply saute your food item and add the sauce after.
This is also great for vegetarian items. Make a vegetable brochette, marinated them with this sauce and grill them. Serve with a yogurt dip.
