Citizens, with the Islamic holy month of Ramadan now in full swing, I thought it appropriate to share one of my most exotic and intricate recipes with you!
Harissa, the spicy red pepper paste redolent of both caraway and garlic is one of the most well-known condiments throughout Northern Africa, if not the entire Middle East!
Just try and have a falafel without a drizzle of this and you will receive at best a questioning look and at worst it will be made clear you lack the true palate of the region!
Most special of all, however, is the ultimate version – one reserved for sultans, the wealthiest or the most honored of guests.
This is the Harissa made with fresh rose petals, the rarest of spices and a unique complexity of flavor worthy of sharing as sundown at last ends and the daily breaking of the fast begins.
My Citizens, even in Tunisia, this dish is an absolute rarity. Sample its many flavorful wonders and know the true glory of this most munificent and regal Harissa! My version of this recipe is without question the most authentic you will find on the Web, and I am confident you will agree it is the most fantastic of condiments once you have sampled it! 🙂
This is NOT an easy recipe to make – my version is without compromise and uses a full 40 ingredients! You’re worth it, though – you are the proud Citizens of TFD Nation and together we shall achieve true, perpetual glory!
