Baharat Spice Mix (improvised)

I adapted this mixture from the recipe in "Jerusalem: A Cookbook." I think I achieved the spirit of it.

  • 1 Coffee grinder


  • 1 tsp Black peppercorns
  • 1 tsp Dried cilantro use coriander (aka cilantro seeds) if you have them
  • 1 tsb Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp Allspice
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg


  • Place all ingredients in a coffee grinder and grind until peppercorns are completely ground and the mixture is, well, mixed.
  • Place mixture in a sealed container.


This wonderful, aromatic blend of seasonings can be used in a tabbouleh or as a rub for meat. I used just one teaspoon in a huge bowl of tabbouleh, and it added such a wonderful flavor.
