A lighter take on wings doesn’t sacrifice on crispy flavor. Greek yogurt and Afghan Curry Blend keep the chicken moist and flavorful, and we double down on the curry flavor by adding a Swiss Chard and Yogurt Dip to go alongside.
We love Persian Gulf Baharat as our “Middle Eastern Multitasker.” Combined with brown sugar, it’s a rub made in summer grilling heaven. We rub down country style pork ribs with the spice mixture and grill to sweet and savory perfection.
Don’t keep these lamb skewers to yourself- these are easy to prep ahead and grill for a crowd. An unusually flavorful pairing, we’ve combined Rumi Persian Baharat Blend with ketchup for a glaze similar to a sticky BBQ sauce.
This corn recipe is a hit on or off the cob. Rumi Southwest Chili Spice Blend adds a kick to this classic Mexican street food, along with crumbled cojita cheese to cool things down. Add peeled corn directly to the grill for a delicious charred effect. Serve directly on the cob, or cut off and make ahead for an easy to serve side.
A versatile dip for chips, wings, veggies and more, this Rumi Spice Saffron Yogurt Dip is a crowd pleaser. Simply bloom your Saffron in hot water and combine with tangy Greek yogurt, garlic, and lemon juice for a versatile dip you can share with friends (or keep in your fridge for a party of one).
The grill is a perfect reason to gather this summer, and we’re bringing a whole new realm of flavor for the best grilling season yet! Shop all of our favorite Rumi Spice blends and spices for grilling this summer below.
