Recipe Details

A staple in Eastern Mediterranean cooking, Baharat Seasoning is a warm spice blend that varies not only by region but by household. It includes black pepper, cardamom, cloves, cumin, nutmeg, coriander, and paprika. Make this version to add depth to rice, soups, meat, fish, and chicken dishes.

  1. Mix all ingredients in small bowl until well blended.
  2. Store in tightly covered jar in cool, dry place.


Baharat Seasoning marries well with lamb and beef, enlivens rice dishes and helps cut the acidity of tomato-based dishes.
