What is Koobideh Spice Mix?

Koobideh seasoning adds warm and savory spice to ground meat making the juiciest, flavor-packed kebabs. Zesty coriander and robust wild black cumin & turmeric are the core ingredients in this bold blend, complemented by a bit of heat from the chili powder and a bright citrusy sumac finish.

How to use it

This earthy and vibrant mix of spices pairs with ground meat (traditionally a mixture of ground beef and lamb) to create juicy, flavor-packed kebabs. For a lighter option, try it with ground turkey or chicken. Serve over fluffy basmati rice, pita, or a simple salad for a Middle Eastern feast with minimal effort.
