Muhammara / Roasted Bell Pepper and Walnut Dip
Roasted bell pepper and walnut dip -specialty from Middle EastMuhammara is a popular condiment in the Middle East, originally from Syria. It is made with roasted bell peppers and walnuts and is served with Arabic mezze items such as pita bread, or any snack or bread of your choice. You may also serve it as a side dish with a regular meal. It has a very nice smoky taste from roasted bell peppers and walnuts and a slight tang from pomegranate molasses.
When I tasted Muhammara at a restaurant I loved the flavors and wanted to try it at home and after searching a lot I made this version. As I don’t have pomegranate molasses at home so substituted it with thick pomegranate syrup. This dip is a good and delicious substitute and a change from the regular tomato ketchup.
