Lebanese seven spice blend, also known as baharat ("spices" in Arabic), is a classic Middle Eastern blend made with warm spices, including allspice, cumin, cloves and coriander. Different regions within Lebanon have their own recipes and ratios, with some using other spices such as white pepper, fenugreek and/or paprika. Seven spice is what lends distinctive flavor to regional dishes, notably kebabs, koftas and dolmas. You can also use it to flavor meat, vegetables and rice.
Place the allspice, coriander, cumin, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper and nutmeg in a small bowl and stir to combine using a small spoon. Transfer to a glass jar with a tight lid and store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months.
