Qâlat daqqa

Qâlat daqqa (also spelled gâlat dagga),[1][2] or Tunisian Five Spices, is a spice blend originating from the North African nation of Tunisia. It is made of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, peppercorns, and grains of paradise mixed and ground to a fine powder. It is most often used to spice meats and vegetable dishes.[3] The flavor of the mixture is described as being "sweet and warm".[4]


Qâlat daqqa is utilized in several manners:

  1. In meats it is used as ether a dry rub or as an ingredient to marinades. It is noted for use in lamb tajines.[5]
  2. In vegetable dishes, it is noted for imparting a warm flavor, especially in pumpkin- or eggplant-based dishes.[5]
