Baharat Spice Mixture

Baharat is an Arab spice mix. It comes in different combinations depending on the country. You can choose any combination you like but it should mostly contain:

  • fresh ground black pepper
  • paprika
  • ground cumin
  • ground coriander
  • ground cloves

The ingredients above should form the bulk of the mixture however Baharat should also contain a little bit of:

  • nutmeg
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground cardamom

There are many different recipes for Baharat spice mixture. This is the one I settled on. It makes two tablespoons – which is enough for most recipes without leaving any spare.
