Salata Hara

Servings : Makes 1 cup

This is a speedy fresh sauce that is served with most Arabic rice meals which contains chicken or lamb.  It resembles a salsa and is normally not extremely hot, but since I love my food spicy I like to ‘up’ the amount of green chillis than what you would normally expect to find for this kind of yummy condiment.


  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1-2 green chillis (more if you prefer it spicier or none if you don't want the spice)
  • pinch of cumin powder
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt to taste


Put everything in a processor or blender and pulse for a few seconds until almost liquidised, leave some small chunks for texture.  Pour into a bowl and serve with the meal of your choice!
