Red Chilli Flakes, Garlic, Mild Paprika, Rose Petals, Caraway Seed, Coriander Seed, Smoked Sweet Paprika, Cumin, Sea Salt, Mint.
Rose Harissa is fragrant and not quite as hot as the fiery traditional Tunisian Harissa paste, made predominantly from red-hot chillies and used as an accompaniment to a wide variety of foods, in much the same way as the Italians use pestou, the Asians chilli sauce and the Indians their lime pickles.
Make as much Rose Harissa paste as you need at a time by simply mixing Herbie’s Spices Rose Harissa mix with an equal amount of water, then just enough oil to create the consistency you desire.
Delicious with North African rice and cous cous dishes, on cold meat sandwiches instead of mustard and with hummus on crusty bread.
Lovers of spiced yet fragrant dishes adore Harissa sprinkled onto meats as a dry marinade before cooking.
