Hah! Yes, yes it is.

This recipe looks mighty tasty. The linked baharat on the website is frickin' 15$, coupled with the price of chicken and lamb, this is one expensive dish.

I didn't take the time to price each spice out, but a cursory wiki look shows that baharat can contain the following:

Allspice
Black peppercorns
Cardamom seeds
Cassia bark
Cloves
Coriander seeds
Cumin seeds
Nutmeg
Turmeric
Saffron -This one here is the heavy hitter.
Ginger
Dried red chili peppers or paprika

Papitas are just pumpkin seeds. I always roast and salt some as a snack come fall; a few ornamental pumpkins may need to be scarified early.

Then throw it into one of the regional flat breads, and consume.

Two pounds of meat plus a whole chicken, rice and nuts serves 4 to 6?

Of my fat ass, maybe. Dang.

Holy shiat, even without the saffron, making that dish outside of a commercial kitchen (where you just have that stuff on hand) is gonna cost like $30 a plate. Sure it sounds absolutely amazing, but fark you I'm not buying all those things I don't have on hand just for a tiny amount and then probably not use it again and end up throwing it out.

And I have all those spices/herbs except for saffron in my house right now.

Sold as cheap cinnamon here afaik.

I'm sure I could find a use for leftovers of all those assorted nuts and seeds, but not before at least some of them started getting rancid.

Would love to order this in a restaurant, though. It sounds glorious.

Hmmm. I have all the spices, some extra lamb in the freezer, and this year the saffron circuses have been doing well.

The saffron is pretty nonstandard as a main baharat ingredient. Mostly because so many saffron additions involve crumbling and soaking into warm broth/milk/etc.

I also prefer to use fresh ginger and garlic where applicable, so I typically don't put that in home blends.

If you do any South Asian cooking to speak of, you should really already have all that stuff. Otherwise, the allspice berries, whole nutmeg, and coriander seeds would be pretty nonstandard to keep around.

At any rate, I didn't put much of a dent into my spice stash to make about 12 oz of baharat (slightly different blend) back in May or June, and I'm just now pretty much out. ~24 tbsp goes a long way, but you can easily use it in all kinds of dishes; it's especially great as a fire and forget addition in simple meat and grain pilaf dishes, like ground lamb and rice or bulgur wheat.

oddly (or, since this is foodtab and I'm really not supposed to be here...so, perhaps not-oddly?) I do have every single one of those things in my cabinet. including whole nutmegs whole allspice berries and a farking microplane grater and all. "I could make it at home, for nothing! I just need two small aubergines..." - lol!

the nuts are still driving me crazy (reverse pirate joke?) - and yeah, roasted+salted pepitas are usually available at dollar tree, 5oz seems like a steal! man, those things do not last around here - salads, out of hand, making toffee/brittle, mmm.

and, curious if'n they went for real pignoli or the 'murican stuff. I love both, but can totally taste a difference.

Yah, I have neither heard of nor used cassia bark before. Sounds like cinnamon as Anoria pointed out. I'll give this recipe a go some time, but omit the saffron as olrasputin mentioned it wasn't necessary. I have but 4 of the listed spices on hand for what's in bahara. I have none of the nuts or seeds on hand as listed in the recipe, no lamb, and running low on chicken.

This will be a special surprise dish for future Mrs. blodyholy

it's been a pretty common difference for ages? the real-deal stuff from Ceylon/Srilanka, and the cassia from like Vietnam? this is one instance where the sensitive taster in me actually has trouble telling.

but man I haz an excite to hear back when you cook this dish, the vicarious greedy me wants to see photos, hear about Mrs. blodyholy reaction, everything.

blodyholy: 151: 151: blodyholy: tintar:

Yup. It's to differentiate it from Sri Lankan (also called Ceylon or true) cinnamon. They're two different, but related, species. Per googling:

Ceylon cinnamon is lighter in color than the cassia cinnamon, which typically comes from Indonesia, China and other countries. Cassia cinnamon tastes "stronger and hotter," says Ana Sortun, executive chef of Oleana restaurant in Cambridge, Mass., while Ceylon cinnamon is full of "lighter, brighter citrus tones."

I tend to prefer Sri Lankan cinnamon for most savory dishes, but it doesn't hold up well at all in slow-cooked dishes (it is much thinner and "crumblier" than cassia, and the sticks are much more densely packed with thin curls, which tend to splinter apart after simmering a while).

I'd be surprised if you had never used cassia bark before, since nearly all supermarket cinnamon "sticks" are from cassia trees. Only when I started ordering spices from specialty shops like Penzey's did I realize the difference.
