Refresh the spice pantry with The Rumi Spice Collection - representing our premium Afghan saffron, three whole seed spices, and seven of our premium spice blends. The ultimate gift for foodies who love fresh & flavorful spices or for the novice home cook looking to hone their skills for the New Year. The Rumi Spice Collection includes:
2 Grams of our signature Saffron, sought after by award-winning chefs for its delicately sweet & savory flavor, is farmed & prepared in the Herat province - providing jobs to 3,750+ local Afghan women.
Our hard-to-find whole Black Cumin variety imbues dishes with earthy & woodsy flavors, grown wild along the foothills of Afghanistan's Hindu Kush mountains.
Our whole seed Coriander is a must-have in any kitchen. Farmed in the Herat region of Afghanistan, where the terroir yields a complex but delicately sweet flavor with hints of pepper and mint and the classic touch of citrus.
Our Fennel seed, with its slightly sweet flavor profile accented with warm notes of licorice, brings out hidden flavors in a wide variety of dishes - grown wild in the rugged outskirts of the Herat region.
- Our unique Afghan Ground Black Cumin is grown right in the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountains, adding an extra layer of sharp earthy and piney flavors. This intoxicating and aromatic spice tastes great on everything from this spicy flank steak to these delicious cauliflower & chickpea tacos.
- Our hot and smoky Cajun Spice Blend makes the perfect spicy rub on meat, fish or grilled vegetables. The versatile and bold spice blend turns up the heat on any holiday spread or weeknight dinner.
- Our tangy & nutty Za'atar, an herb-based middle eastern spice mix, blends our coriander and cumin with oregano, thyme, sesame, and sumac. Try it as a seasoning on poultry or meats, or combine it with olive oil for a flavor-packed dip.
- Our Ras el Hanout, a warm spice blend from North Africa, combines our signature fennel, coriander and cumin with sweet notes of cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s slightly sweet and richly savory, the perfect addition to stews, grilled meats and even baked goods.
- Bring the rich and warming flavors of Northern India home with our sweet and savory Garam Masala. Add a sprinkle to your weeknight stews, or use it as a dry rub on chicken, lamb or hearty vegetables.
- Our Kabul Piquant Chicken is fruity and citrusy, making it a particularly interesting addition in sweet dishes. This complex, zesty blend will surprise you upon the first scent.
Our Afghan Curry Braise is a savory blend that adds earthy and rustic flavors, similar to a rub but with a mild curry-like quality. With notes of our fabulous saffron, it adds a unique twist to traditional curry flavors.
