I was making a recipe tonight that called for “Mixed Spices” and I was at a loss. I did some research, so I thought I would copy this recipe here for future use. This recipe can be used for Mid-East or Indian Dishes.
Lebanese Mixed Spices
The mixed spices used here are the traditional ‘7 spices’ you can buy off the shelf.
Buy the ingredients in powder form (or make into powder using pestle and mortar). Mix together equal quantities of all the above. Once complete, keep in a sealed jar or container and it will last for at least six months.

Thank You!!! I had no idea what this was or how to get it for tonight’s dinner!
My dad get’s these spices from the “old country” (lebanon) and he doesn’t know the english words for the 7 spices! Thank you thank you thank you!
Where can I buy fenugreek? Whole Foods doesn’t have it, and somebody said the vitamin aisle at Walmart. But isn’t that just a pill?
Fenugreek’s leaves and seeds are both utilized in cooking. In this particular spice mix, you want to look for ground fenugreek, thats the seed. you can buy fenugreek at any indian/pakistani/middle eastern grocery store. to look up a store, click on the markets tab, after you have located your destination on http://www.zabihah.com
