My old trade-school recipe, and always my favourite! I found it today during a major clean of the house.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Remove stems and seeds from chillies-if using dried chillies, soak in water for 1 hour.
  2. Drain.
  3. Process the chillies with garlic, seeds and herbs until finely chopped.
  4. With motor running, gradually add the oil to form a thick paste.
  5. Season to taste with salt.
  6. Store in a glass jar in the fridge-covering with a new thin layer of oil after every use, or freeze, covered, in ice-cube containers for later use.

I like the herb combination, using the combo of mint and cilantro. I added about 3/4 of a teaspoon of allspice too.

A good solid recipe that provides a good base for any recipe requiring harissa. Didn't take too long even using a good old fashioned large mortar and pestle!
