A staple in Eastern Mediterranean cooking, Baharat Seasoning is a warm spice blend that varies by region and even household. It typically includes Black pepper, Cardamom, Cloves, Cumin, Nutmeg, Coriander and Paprika. Make this version to add depth to rice, soups, meat, fish and chicken dishes.
Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl until well blended.
Store in a tightly covered jar in a cool, dry place.
Turkish Baharat Seasoning works well with lamb and beef, enlivens rice dishes and helps cut the acidity of tomato-based dishes.
