Spicy, sultry Rose Harissa is one of Belazu's best sellers, famous in restaurant and domestic kitchens all over the UK-now in Canada. Belazu Rose Harissa has a slow-burning chilli heat, balanced with sweet smokiness that adds real depth of flavour to any dish. It is one of their signature ingredients and bestsellers, having been developed from a secret recipe back in 1995.
The name Harissa comes from the Arabic harasa, meaning ‘to pound’ or ‘break into pieces'. It is not far from a straight translation of the Italian pestare, to 'pound' or 'crush' - which is where we get the word 'pesto' from.
