The Spice Trader Rose Harissa - 50g


Rose Harissa is a North African blend. It most often comes in paste form, and is used in Middle Eastern and North African cuisine. Used by UK chef Yotam Ottolenghi.

This Rose Harissa is a dry blend of chilis and spices: Aleppo pepper, ancho chili, chipotle chili, cumin, garlic, and caraway. The addition of the rose petals adds a balancing floral note. It has some citrus notes and rich spices notes as well. The heat comes from aleppo pepper, ancho, and some smoky chipotle chili. Having a medium heat allows all the amazing flavours to come through.

To make a paste, use olive oil 1/1 to start. Add more oil if it is too thick. Fresh garlic and some lemon juice are nice additions.
