Tabil Spice Blend

There’s no better way to keep things lively than with fragrant, flavorful spices and blends! I present to you my recipe for Tabil, a potent, versatile Tunisian spice blend made of coriander and caraway seeds, chili flakes, and garlic.

  • 1/3 cup coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder


  • Toast the coriander seeds, caraway seeds, and pepper flakes in a dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant (about 2 minutes).
  • Transfer the spices to a container to cool slightly.
  • While the mixture is still warm, add the garlic powder and mix well.
  • Once the mixture has cooled to room temperature, blitz it in a spice grinder. The result should be a fine, fragrant powder!


Store the tabil in a sealed container and stick it in a cool, dark, dry place, and it’ll last for a long, long time.
You can use tabil as a seasoning or dry rub for meats and vegetables. Need some ideas? Try my Tabil Seasoned Sautéed Shrimp or Easy Broiled Tabil Seasoned Mini Beef Patties.
