Every cuisine has its own set of spice powders, which give the dishes of that cuisine a characteristic flavour and aroma. Like Indian cuisine has its Garam Masala , Pav Bhaji Masala or Sambhar Masala , one of the famous spice powders of Lebanese cuisine is the Baharat, a tongue-tickling mix of pepper, red chillies, cinnamon, cloves and several other spices.


A pinch of Baharat is enough to add an intense flavour and irresistible aroma to various Middle Eastern dishes including soups, curries, stews and sauces like Borëk , Mashkool Rice , Chick Pea Soup , Mixed Vegetable Stew , Spinach and Cheese Sambousik , Arabic Salad , Zucchini and Carrot Clear Soup and Stuffed Zucchini .
