💭Pro Tips
  • Use, where possible, whole spices and grind them up yourself using a spice grinder. This will result in an aromatic fresh baharat.
  • If you can’t obtain whole spices, using ground spices is fine.
  • If purchasing baharat from the supermarket, be sure to check the ingredients. I recently came across one which contain so many unnecessary ingredients such as natural flavours, colour additives and acidity regulators.
