Don’t be deceived by its name. While it may have ‘seven spice’ in its name, this mixture of ground up spices actually has eight ingredients: Pepper, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, nutmeg, and cardamom. Otherwise known as baharat, it’s often used in Middle Eastern cooking for its balanced woody and slightly sweet aromas as a rub for meat, such as lamb or beef.
It’s also really easy to put together if you already have the ingredients lying in your pantry:
Grind all the spices together in a mortar and pestle. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
