2 small mild red peppers
2 fresh red chilies
1 handful coriander leaves
1 1/2 tablespoon ground coriander
6 cloves garlic
6 green cardamoms, seeds from

In Yemen, this is the traditional spice mix, a combination of garlic and peppers, and whatever spices the cook chooses. Use as a table condiment.

Finely chop the red peppers and chilies, removing the seeds. Chop the coriander leaves. Blend or pound all the ingredients to a paste, and store in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
