A wide variety of spice mixes is used in the Syrian kitchen. Here is one of the standard recipes of bharat (spice mix) although people in different regions use different ingredients/ amounts.
- 50% allspice
- 20% black pepper
- 10% cinnamon
- 5% ginger
- 5% nutmeg
- 5% cloves
- 5% cardamom
- Instead of giving exact measurements, I will provide you with percentages that you can adapt for your own recipe.
- Grind the spices in a spice grinder (the same as a coffee grinder but I would only use it for spices).
- Mix well and use right away or store in an air-tight container.
