Baharat is the garam masala of the Arabian Peninsula. This blend is the perfect combination of sweet and smoky without any spiciness. An all-purpose exotic blend of heady spices this blend packs a punch, so less is definitely more. Used across the Middle East, with each area having a little twist on the basic blend.
Origin
Depending on the region of Arabia, the Baharat spice mix can include a variation of ingredients. Commonly used throughout the Middle East, Bahārāt is an all-purpose spice blend used in a variety of dishes. The flavour profile can vary dramatically depending on which region within the Middle East & North Africa it comes from. This Baharat blend is a traditionally-inspired take from the Gulf of Arabia. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and smoky without any spiciness. Abbasid Baghdad is known as the first culinary capital of the Arabic-Islamic civilization. After Baghdad was razed to the ground by the Mongol army in 1258, the honour of being a culinary capital of the region was taken by Cairo which soon flourished as a continuator to the Arabian cooking traditions. Because of this, Arabic-Islamic cuisine assumed the accessibility of a wide variety of spices. Today, one can hardly find a spice or herb that is not mentioned in Middle Eastern cookery books.
Taste
Used across the Arabian peninsula, each area will have a little twist on the rudimentary recipe formula. In the Gulf region, black dry lime, or ‘loomi’, is added to this Baharat blend and is known as the ‘Kabsa’ spice blend - a dish of mixed rice and meat that originated from Saudi Arabia-. Lime powder gives distinct profile attributed to the Gulf region and offers a smoky and citrusy flavour that cuts through the richness of Arabian dishes.
Scent
Sweet, smoky and balanced, with light peppermint notes from the bay leaves and although there is a high content of black pepper, it is not pungent.
