Bahārāt is a spice mixture or blend used throughout the Levant, in Lebanese, Syrian, Jordanian, Iraqi, Libyan and Palestinian cuisine. Baharat, in Arabic, means "spices". The name originated in Medieval India, as Bhārat, a Sanskrit name for India, was the source of these spices. The mixture of finely ground spices is often used to season lamb, fish, chicken, beef, and soups. Additionally, it may be used as a condiment, to add more flavour after a meal has been prepared.

Unless you are going to use tons of the stuff, assume half or even a quarter of a teaspoon for one part
