Filfel Chuma

This is the hot condiment of Libyan Jews, originally prepared from dried sweet and hot peppers. This recipe offers a significant shortcut, provided you can obtain top quality cayenne pepper. 
 
 

Ingredients (makes 1 cup)
  • 10 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon high quality hot paprika (cayenne pepper)
  • 4 tablespoons high quality sweet paprika
  • 1 level teaspoon ground caraway
  • 1 level teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup oil, plus more oil, to cover
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

    Mix the ingredients into a smooth paste. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Transfer to a sterilized jar, cover with two tablespoons of oil to prevent spoilage, and store in the refrigerator. It keeps for a long time.
