Harissa

Prep:

Cook:

Serves:

    This version of harissa — also called Felfel uciuma — is a key ingredient in Libyan Jewish cuisine. It is simple, without many ingredients, with a real kick of hot spicy chilli. The lemon gives flavour and helps preserve it for a long time if chilled. Once you learn how to make this simple recipe you’ll always have a little jar in the fridge which you can use to spice up any of your dishes.

    Preparation: 10 minutes
    Makes: a 100ml jar, approximately

    INGREDIENTS
    3-4 garlic cloves, crushed
    2 lemons, juice only
    ½ tsp salt
    3 tbsp dry chilli, powder or crushed
    Extra virgin olive oil to cover the jar

    METHOD

    Mix the crushed garlic, lemon juice, salt and chilli using a pestle and mortar or an electric hand blender until you have a smooth paste.

    Put it in a clean glass jar, drizzle some extra virgin olive oil to cover and close with a lid.

    It will last up to 3-4 months in the fridge. l Use a teaspoon or two anytime you want to add a spicy flavour to your dishes.
