Harissa - off to the Orient
The magic of oriental countries is not only reflected in the country, culture and people, but also in their dishes. Especially the spices have it all. Harissa is a spice mixture that originates from the Maghreb, i.e. the northwest African countries of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Western Sahara. It is actually a paste, with the spices being processed with olive oil, but now harissa is also available as a ground spice blend. So it is even easier to use and has a much longer shelf life.
Harissa - oriental hot and minty at the same time
The Harissa blend you get from Hartkorn has a special feature to offer. We do not only mix the usual ingredients like chili, coriander, garlic, cumin and caraway, we also add a hint of mint. This gives the already oriental spice its very special flavor. Attention: In Harissa chili is used. In our mixture, we use quite mild chili, so that the spice is hot - which it should be - but still within limits. The right spiciness is a matter of taste anyway and has to be tested individually. If you want it to be a little spicier, just use a little more harissa spice.
Harissa - versatile
One thing is for sure: With Harissa you get a very special flavor that will remind you of the Orient. The spice mixture is versatile. It can be added to meat and fish dishes, vegetables, soups, stews, pasta and rice, and last but not least to dips and marinades. Maybe you would like to try the so-called Merguez, a minced sausage made of lamb and beef, which is spicy with Harissa.
