Green Chili Sauce with Cumin and Cardamom Recipe

Green Chili Sauce with Cumin and Cardamom Recipes

Ingredients :

4 ounces fresh green chilies, roughly chopped

4 large garlic cloves, peeled and sliced

1/2 cup roughly chopped celery

1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro

fresh lemon juice or water

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp ground cumin

1/4 to 1/2 ground cardamom

pinch of salt

Method :

Puree the chilies with the garlic and fresh herbs in a small food processor. Add a little lemon juice or water to help blend the mixture, if necessary, then add the spices and blend again. Dilute with additional water or lemon juice, as needed. Store in the refrigerator in a covered glass jar. This will keep a week or more. If you want a very hot sauce, do not remove the seeds and veins from the chilies before you chop them.

Makes 1/2 cup

The cardamom reveals the origins of this Yemenite-based sauce. Its sweetness is barely detectable as such, but it gives an added dimension to the chilies. This is delicious with yams and sweet potatoes, with corn dishes, stirred into soups, or spread on crackers. Any fresh green chili can be used: Serrano's, jalapenos, Anaheim's. Even a green bell pepper, mixed with a small amount of hot chili, can be used by those who have a low tolerance for heat.
