Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Dip is a traditional Syrian dip called muhammara. This is a good way to eat the Walnuts. It can be served with selection of small dishes like hoummus, pickles, olives, cheese and flatbread. Best part is it can be made a day in advance for parties!



Preparation Time:

10 min

Cooking Time:

15 mins


Red Bell Peppers - 3
 Walnut halves coarsely chopped - 100g
 Dried Chilli flakes - ½ tsp
 Sun dried Tomato paste - 1 tbsp
 Garlic Cloves chopped - 2
 Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
 Balsamic Vinegar - 1 tbsp
 Sugar - 2 tsp
 Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
 Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
 Pistachio chopped to sprinkle
 Salt to taste
 Black Pepper powder for seasoning


• Cook the Peppers in a pre heated Oven to 220 degree centigrade for about 10 - 15 minutes or until the skin has puffed up and blackened all over.

• Transfer this to a bowl, cover with a towel and leave until it is cool enough to handle.

• Remove the skin and seeds from the Peppers and tear the flesh into pieces.

• Then put this in a food processor and add the remaining ingredients. Grind it into a coarse paste.

• Season with Salt and Pepper and transfer it into a bowl.

• Cover this with clingfilm and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. This will develop good flavour.

• Bring this to room temperature before serving. Drizzle with some Olive Oil and sprinkle some chopped Pistachio.

• Serve with toasted bread.

"Dear Spices of India, I have been using Spices of India for about 2 years now. The reasons are many and varied... 1. Huge selection of products at very reasonable prices. 2. Unless you live in an area that has an Asian grocery shop or supermarket that also stocks these items then this is the fastest and most convenient way to shop.3. The service offered, from the initial online shop to receiving the order at home, is absolutely superb.4. For example, I placed my latest order on a Wednesday evening and the items were with me on Friday morning at 7.30am. How could you better that.5. If you are unsure about any product or the delivery schedule, then simply email them with your query. In most cases you will probably have a reply to your question within minutes. 6. In summing up then.....If you need Asian grocery products/cookware/cookbooks then look no further that Spices Of India for a totally unbeatable service. PS. No, I do not work for them!!"
