This Moroccan rub is especially good with lamb but is also great with chicken and vegetarian dishes. I also use this in guacamole and casserole bases to give an extra zing.


Makes: 1 cup (approx)

  • 185g bird's eye chillies, seeded and stems removed
  • 12 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon coriander, ground
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried mint
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) olive oil

Preparation:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Place the chillies, garlic, ground coriander, cumin, salt, mint and coriander into a blender or food processor. If the mixture is too dry, add a bit of the olive oil. Store in a bowl or jar in the refrigerator with the remaining oil poured in a layer over the top.
  2. Make sure that the surface is covered with a layer of oil each time you use some. When you run out of Harissa you can use the oil to add flavour to fried or baked dishes.
