Tips & Usage

This earthy, warming blend instantly infuses ground meat (we love it with lamb or beef) with a bold world of flavor. Fresh cilantro and onion add another level of brightness that pairs well with the zesty coriander, sumac, and garlic. Top off your tender beef patties with refreshing tzatziki sauce, Greek yogurt, or chopped veggies for a simple, healthy Middle Eastern meal.

Kofta Patties



Rumi direct sources the highest quality spices from Afghanistan to help provide reliable wages and economic stability for rural farmers and women. Connecting Afghan farmers with the global market is key to unlocking their economic potential.
