Arabic Cuisine and particularly Middle Eastern cuisine use a particular spice mix that we refer to as mixed spices or seven spices.
To prepare 250 grams of mixed spices used in Arabic and Middle Eastern food, at home you will need:
50 grams allspice
25 grams black pepper
10 grams cloves
35 grams cinnamon
15 grams nutmeg (4 nutmeg seeds)
15 grams cardamon
4 grams Arabic Gum (also known as Meska or Acacia Gum)
Preparation time: 5 min
Ground all these together in a spice/coffee grinder machine and store in airtight glass container.
P.S: If you do not have Arabic Gum, you can still prepare the seasoning without it.
