Baharat – Rumi Spice

Baharat: The "Middle Eastern Multitasker"

What is Baharat?

A common spice blend in Middle Eastern cooking, we've deemed our Baharat the “Middle Eastern multi-tasker." The word baharat translates to “spices” in Arabic and is a blend of Middle Eastern staple spices, including our signature Afghan cumin & coriander. Our flavorful and exotic Persian Gulf Baharat mirrors these traditional flavors and adds a bold, sweet, and savory touch to any dish.

How to use it

The warm spice profile of our authentic Baharat makes it the perfect addition to sweet and savory dishes alike. The versatile blend adds the perfect level of zest and richness to grilled kabobs or stone fruit cobblers. Use it as a marinade on meat, whisk it into olive oil for a flavor-packed dressing, or mix with brown sugar for deliciously-addicting spiced nuts.

Baharat on chicken - YES!

This is an extraordinary spice - loads of flavor with a bit of heat. I pan roast it with a sliced or diced onion and white wine or chicken stock. Brown chicken thighs and onion on both sides in cast iron pan, add liquid and a bunch of Baharat, simmer 12 minutes more on each side. Fabulous with green salad and sweet potato. Thank you Rumi - huge new favorite!

Warming spice

The Baharat is a great addition to my spice rack. The spice combination is terrific- savory and warming. It works really well with chicken, beef, lamb, and lentils!
