Bahārāt is a spice mixture that is used in the Middele East and in other Arab speaking countries as a general spice(blend).

Bahārāt is believed to have been a nomadic Bedouin mixture that extended time after time when the Bedouins became acquainted with a new herb or spice. As a result, there is no single bahārāt, but many variants of this spice mixture circulate in the Arab world, each time with a slightly different 'touch', but basically with the same ingredients. A related mixture is fulful bhrat used in the preparation of Kibbeh.

The mixture is peculiar to the entire Mashriq, which is the Arabic-speaking countries east of Libya (including Israel), and to the Turkish and Kurdish cuisine. Beyond it we see a simple bahārāt in Tunisia, which consists only of dried rose buds, cinnamon and black pepper.

In Turkey, bahārāt is used to spice kofte and pilafs, and for that reason mint is added. In the countries of the Gulf of Persia, saffron and dried black lime (loomi) are also added.

Bahārāt contains:

  • pul biber
  • black pepper and / or
  • long pepper
  • coriander seeds
  • clove
  • allspice
  • cinnamon
  • green cardamom
  • rose petals
