Home made Harissa

Preparation : 15 mins

Ingredients for 4 small pots :
- 300g red chilli peppers
- 10 cloves garlic
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon ground coriander
- 125ml Bio Planète Extra virgin olive oil from Tunisia

Dry the chilli peppers in the sun or buy them dried. Remove the stems and the seeds and crush them with the salt. Peel the garlic and reduce to a purée with the spices. Mix with the Bio Planète olive oil and pour into small glass pots.

If you use hermetic pots, the harissa will keep for several weeks.

Harissa is the best known and most common seasoning mixture used in Tunisian cooking. This very hot spicy sauce, also found in Morocco and Algeria, gives the characteristic kick to dishes like tajines and couscous.
