Margarita's Recipes


Harissa Sauce

Harissa is an ubiquitous spice mix/sauce used by Berbers and Arabs alike throughout the Maghreb. It can be used as a condiment and a grilling sauce, and it's often an ingredient in other dishes. There are many variations to this recipe, but this is a fairly typical one. If you don't have caraway seeds around, many recipes omit it. The recipe below produces a very spicy sauce, for a less spicy one use milder or fewer chilies.

Remove the seeds from the chili peppers. Soak the peppers in water for hour. Put all the ingredients in a blender or mini chopper and blend until smooth.
