What is Harissa

Harissa Recipe

The main ingredients in a dry homemade harissa are usually piri piri, a type of chili pepper, serrano peppers or other hot chili peppers, plus spices and herbs, like garlic, coriander, red chili powder and caraway seeds. But depending on which household you live in or what region you're from, it might include other things like cumin, , red peppers and lemon juice.
