Simply translates “pepper garlic” – this is a popular condiment amongst the Tripoli Jews of Libya. Somewhat could be considered a relative of the Harissa, but here the focus shifts to dry, deep umami flavors, with a strong kick of garlic. The texture is granulated, almost crystalized mix of paprika, cayenne, salt, garlic, caraway and oil. This deep-red condiment serves as the perfect kitchen hack to enrich most dishes and stews, particularly and most famously used in Shakshuka, but also far beyond. It could also accompany a meal as a finishing sauce and has a rather mild spice level but is very flavorsome.
