Harissa is a traditional accompaniment with Moroccan and North African food. Use sparingly as it is powerfully spicy!
Place the chiles garlic ground coriander cumin salt mint and cilantro into a blender or food processor.
If the mixture is too dry add a bit of the olive oil.
Store in a bowl or jar in the refrigerator with the remaining oil poured in a layer over the top.
Make sure that the surface is covered with a layer of oil each time you use some.
When you run out of Harissa you can use the oil to add flavor to fried or baked dishes.
