With a well-stocked spice cabinet, you can develop your own Baharat recipe. A good base to start from is:
- 4 parts black pepper
- 3 parts ground coriander seed
- 3 parts cinnamon
- 3 parts ground cloves
- 4 parts ground cumin
- 1 part cardamom pods
- 3 parts nutmeg
- 6 parts paprika
If your cabinet has whole spice seeds rather than powders, grind seeds before blending the mixture.
On the internet, you will find many variations on this typical recipe.
- Allrecipes adds star anise to the blend and different portions for the basic ingredients.
- Daringgourmet.com and food.com stick to the eight basics, but each with different proportions of the ingredients.
