Harissa is a fiery condiment made from grinding dried red chili peppers and garlic to a paste with lemon juice and olive oil. Cumin, caraway and coriander are typical seasonings. Some versions of harissa – such as that available from Mustapha's Moroccan – include roasted red bell pepper in the paste. Others might include tomato.
Although harissa originated in Tunisia, it is very popular throughout North Africa, and many Moroccans add it to almost every meal. Try making your own with this easy Harissa Recipe.
