What Is In 7 Spice Blend | Baharat Spice Mix?
Most of the spices used in these 7 Spice Blend or Baharat Spice are pretty popular. However, not many are familiar with fenugreek, what it tastes like, how it looks, etc.
This is a leafy plant that is most commonly found in Asia. Before its ground, fenugreek almost has the appearance of being small chunks of pretzel only maybe a little lighter.
When ground, it's a lightly colored powder. Fenugreek has an almost vanilla-like flavor, being only lightly sweet with a nutty resonance.
Although this 7 Spice Blend would definitely go well in recipes such as breads, cakes, etc. it also goes really well with dishes such as Eastern meatloaf or as a meat rub.
