MainRecipesVegetarian | Homemade Harrissa

   Homemade Harrissa submitted by Mom Johnson
I want to make this mixture to use on Harissa-Roasted Chicken with Chickpeas. The bottled/jar version is wonderful but hard to find in our small town.

Put both chilies into a heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit for 20 minutes. Heat seeds in a skillet for about 4 minutes or until fragrant. Transfer seeds and mint into a spice grinder and grind until they are a fine powder. Drain the chilies and add to a food processor along with the spices, lemon juice, garlic, salt and olive oil. Process for 2 minutes. Fill small clean jars with mixture and cover the mixture with more olive oil to seal.
