Inspired by Hawaij (pronounced "ha-wa-yej"), a Yemenite-Jewish spice mix that is very popular in Israel, this sunny, fragrant flavour bomb is turmeric-based with a touch of cumin, nutmeg, cardamom and caraway seeds.

All the Middle Eastern flavours you could wish for and beyond, this is perfect for seasoning all kinds of meat roasts, grilled chicken, roasted veggies, baked barramundi, soups, stews, rice, couscous and lentil dishes. Our top tip: sprinkle a few teaspoons of our Hawaij blend over roasted carrots, drizzle extra virgin olive oil all over, mix well and slide into the oven. We promise it'll be a life changing experience, packed with caramel, citrus and nutty flavours.  



Rich, complex, slightly citrusy aroma and an earthy character. We've blended a base of bright turmeric and earthy cumin with galangal, caraway seeds and a hint of nutmeg, cardamom and black peppercorns to create a typically Middle Eastern Hawaij blend with bright, floral, fruity notes and a mellow sweetness.

This blend is SALT FREE so you may wish to add sea salt to taste.


Great with

  • Jazz up any grilled or roasted vegetables - sweet potatoes, broccolini, carrots, cauliflower or parsnips - by sprinkling Adeni with a generous drizzle of olive oil and some sea salt before roasting or grilling.
  • Delicious as a rub for BBQ chicken or grilled fish mixed with some olive oil and good sea salt.
  • Add to couscous, rice or lentils during cooking for a subtle exotic flavour.
  • For a flavourful schnitzel mix a tablespoon or two of Adeni with bread crumbs before coating the chicken. 
  • Add few table spoons during cooking to turn wintery soups and hearty stews into an exotic feast.
