Introducing Hawaij - Hawaij has a deep golden hue and a flavorful, complex blend of spices, including caraway and turmeric. It elicits an earthy, rich taste experience with a subtle hint of pepperiness. Hawaij can be described as a daring, Yemeni garam masala. All-natural, salt-free and vegan.

Endless culinary adventures - You can use Hawaij as a marinade or rub for poultry or pork. For vegetarian inspiration, try with lentil-style curry dishes, roasted cauliflower or toasted chickpeas. Some of our customers tell us that Hawaij is sublime in chicken or pork escalope with panko breadcrumbs. Fundamentally, Hawaij is an all-purpose seasoning.

At Cameler Spice Co., we take pride in milling and blending our spices in-house. We do our utmost to use the freshest cooking spices within one year from field to jar. Our main objective is to minimize our supply chain by sourcing ingredients directly from regenerative farms. Indulge in the rich flavours of Hawaij for up to two years, meticulously handwritten on the lid for a personal touch.
Hawaij is a celebration of Yemeni ground spices. As an ancient blend, and staple to the Yemeni kitchen, this blend can be in several forms, a savoury, sweet and for coffee. Each offering a harmonious and distinctly aromatic base to dishes and beverages.
A hint of nutty and bittersweet sharpness with a slight pepperiness base.
Aromatic and warming with peppery, spicy and citrusy notes.
How to use
This versatile spice blend can be used as a spice rub for slow pulled pork or beef. A marinade for chicken or fish for those Indian summer barbeque days. It can even be added to soups, stews, pies, “curry-style” dishes, rice and roasted vegetables. It will give you plenty of happiness all year around with its diverse use. It has long played a pivotal role in Yemeni and Israeli cuisine.

Some of our blends will be gluten free, but it is important to note that some spices and herbs naturally contain gluten.

It is also important to note that these have been packaged in a facility that handles, stores, and processes tree nuts and celery. This product may contain traces of celery, gluten, mustard, sesame, soy and nuts.

Always store in a dry place. A pantry, press or cupboard will suffice. We have made that easy by housing our blends in dark amber mason jars under an aluminium lid. Aluminium reflects both heat and light, making it the perfect material for food preservation under its closing. Spice and herb blends typically have a use by date, in our case, 24 months from manufacture.
