Yemenite Schug Recipe
Posted on 9th of July, 2013 by Lévana
Every cuisine has its hot sauce recipe favorite and its own gamut of condiments it hails from, that becomes the pride and joy of their creations: Salsa, Harissa, Charif, Schug, Chutney, Hot Pepper Jelly, to name just a few. All delicious and all worth making.
I confess I love them all! Schug is the Yemenite Favorite, all-green, pungent and pleasantly acrid, thanks to the inclusion of Fenugreek, a staple in Yemenite Cooking, called Halbah in Arabic.
Yemenite Schug Recipe:
6 jalapeno peppers
1 large bunch cilantro, stems cut off
1/4 cup ground fenugreek
2 teaspoon ground dry coriander
6 large cloves garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Process all ingredients in a food processor, until fine but not completely smooth. You want a schug with some texture. Store refrigerated in a glass jar.
