Snazzy and spicy, the Harissa Sauce is guaranteed to warm your taste buds! A traditional treat from North Africa, the Harissa Sauce has red chillies as its primary ingredient, complemented by other spices like cumin, coriander, fennel, etc.
An assortment of spices gives this sauce a flavour that is not singularly hot but holistically spicy, with a good mix of flavours. You can make a batch of this sauce and store it in an airtight container in the freezer for over 15 days.
Use it to make tongue-tickling treats like Potatoes in Harissa Sauce , or serve as an accompaniment for snacks . You can serve it with Mint and Masoor Tikki or Lehsuni Matki Palak Tikki .
