Jalapeno Harissa

December 4, 2016

Author Notes: One of the great things about loving food, is that people give you samples of their allotments, and this case one of my ladies friends gave me some Jalapeno Peppers. I struggled for a while in what to cook, but came up with this Jalapeno Harissa recipe.FatLadFood

Serves: loads


  • 5 Jalapeno Chili's
  • 2 Chili's (your choice)

In This Recipe


  1. Using a grill pan, blacken the skins of all of the chili’s. Once complete, place them in a bowl, and cover with cling film. Leave to cool for 30mins.
  2. Put the coriander seeds and cardamom seeds into a pan, and toast them gently. When you can smell the spices perfume your kitchen, remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Put the garlic into a pestle & mortar, and crush down to a paste.
  4. De-skin and de-seed the chili’s (optional) and chop finely. Add to the garlic spice mixture, and bash the life out of it.
  5. Put it into a nice jar and cover. Will keep in the fridge for two weeks.
