Spicy condiments are popular across the globe, from fiery hot sauces of the Americas to lip-tingling sambals of Asia. North Africa and the Middle East also offer a huge selection of spicy sauces to enhance the eating experience.
Pilpelchuma is a Libyan and Tunisian creation made from chilli peppers and spices alongside garlic and oil. The results are a smoky, spicy and intensely flavourful burst of flavour.
Pilpelchuma is a super easy and quick sauce to whip together, taking a matter of minutes. I live for this stuff and drizzle it over everything! Kebabs, humus, salads, soups all benefit from a quick glug of Pilpelchuma sauce.
But my most favourite combination is sweet potato fries with a generous douse of Pilpelchuma. The marriage of sweet, heat and earthy spice is so wonderful and it's a simple and hugely effective way of bringing a heady dose of North African personality to the table.
