Zhug - Mediterranean Hot sauce

I am always on a look out for spicy , hot sauce or dishes. Since I was making falafel, I wanted to make different spicy sauce to go with that. I know about this zhug sauce, but I don't have or have seen red spicy peppers here in this part of world. So was thinking about making it green one using jalapenos. Zhug is sauce from Yemen, its pronounce different region to regions schug , shug, skhug , it can be red, green or brown but one thing is common is - its hot and spicy. It's a very simple sauce made with green or red spicy peppers, along with coriander, garlic and cumin.  I like smooth sauces that's why I made it smooth one in blender, if you like chunky , you can use food processor and keep it chunky. 

You can drizzle over your salad, or have it with falafel, shawarma, or any bbq meats or vegetable, it goes perfectly on those. Use the hottest peppers you find, I had it with jalapenos since that's widely available.


Ingredients : 

2 Jalapenos cut in big chunks
1 Large bunch of coriander leaves
4 big cloves of garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh lime juice

Method : 

Put Jalapenos, garlic and coriander in blender. 


Blend it till you got nice chunky puree. 

Add salt, pepper , cumin and blend it again. 

Take it out in a bowl and add olive oil and mix it , this will keep green color vibrant. 

Enjoy it where ever you want, salad, falafel, bataka poha, bread. Possibilities are endless. 

Store in glass bottle for the future use, it can stay good till 10 days in refrigerator. But for me, it lasted only 3 days.
