Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

10 - 12
dried red chili peppers
3 clove
garlic minced
1/2 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 tsp
ground coriander
1 tsp
ground caraway seed
1/2 tsp
cumin

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Soak the dried chilies in hot water for 45 minutes. Drain and remove stems and seeds.
Combine chili peppers, garlic, salt, and olive oil in a food processor and blend till the big chunks are gone. Don't over do it here. This is supposed to be a paste with little bits in it not a sauce.
Add remaining spices and blend to form a semi smooth paste.
Store in airtight container. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil on top to keep fresh or press a piece of plastic wrap over the top so it touches all the way around. This wonderful concoction will keep for at least a month in the refrigerator.
