    Kitchen Dictionary: Harissa

    Also known as Tunisian chili paste. Made from peppers and tomatoes, and used as a meat rub when mixed with oil or water. This spice mixture originated in Tunisia. Containing chilies, cumin, garlic, coriander, caraway seeds, cinnamon and olive oil. Well known for being combined with couscous. Harissa is frequently used with pasta as well as in sandwiches, and is well paired with grilled lamb. It is to be used liberally as a condiment. It may be compared to the way you may use Tabasco sauce. Harissa may be used in powder form, but is suggested that you add enough water to make a paste, and then add some good quality olive oil to reach desired consistency.
