Chermoula - Condiment from North Africa

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Incredibly tasty, Herby and Flavourful sauce Chermoula hails from North African countries like Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria. It's marinate for seafood, meat or tofu. Many times I marinate paneer or use as spread in many items.

Charmoula is one of the sauce that is prepared and ready within five minutes, blend olive oil, lemon zest, spices and fresh herbs into little rough consistency and use it in desired recipes.  It can be made spicy or kept mild, choice is yours !

You will need :-
  • One small bunch Parsley
  • One small bunch Coriander
  • 2 tbsp thyme
  • 1" fresh ginger piece
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. red chili flakes ( adjust to your liking )
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp whole coriander seeds
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
Method :-
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until a thick moderately rough sauce.
Use it when required.

Happy Cooking :)
