How To Make Harissa Paste
If you’ve ever had a chance of taking a road trip to North Africa, you’ll be served every meal with a thick chili paste they call Harissa, just like Americans have ketchup with their meals.
Harissa is associated with Tunisia and considered a staple in North Africa and Middle Eastern Countries. The Origin of the word “Harissa” is an Arabia verb called “Harasa” which means “to break into pieces” . This versatile chili paste has a tendency to add depth and complexity to any dish along with a boost in taste. It can be used with meat, vegetable, scrambled eggs or can be mixed with yogurt to use as a dip. In Tunisian food recipes, they use Harissa to add flavour to meat and stews.
