Middle Eastern spice Blend for Rice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Middle eastern spice mixes Help!
I need help for some Middle Eastern visitors I am working with (mainly Iraqi’s) and they asked me if I had a spice blend for rice. The folks couldn’t articulate to me (and I unfortunately don’t speak Arabic) what the blend was made of. Anyone out there know what they traditionally put in rice, with tomato paste or sauce and onions?
Also is there a seasoning blend for the bread? They are making bread and the research I have just done talks about a spice they dip the bread into. Also is there any traditional spice (blend?) other than curry powder they use for chicken kebobs?
As soon as I can get a response would be great I would like to get this out to them today or tomorrow.
Thanks!
