Adjika – spicy dip by Yuliya


  1. 3 kilos of tomatoes
  2. 1.5 kilos of sweet red peppers
  3. 250-500 grams of hot fresh red peppers - dry will take longer to bring out the hot flavour and hard to judge how much you need
  4. 200 grams of garlic
  5. 2 heaped tbs of dried coriander
  6. salt - amount dependent upon personal preference, just remember you need more salt to keep it longer


  1. Remove all of the seeds from the sweet and hot red peppers
  2. Remove the skins from the garlic
  3. Remove the skins from the tomatoes
  4. Crush the hot and sweet peppers and the tomatoes and garlics - mincer is the best thing for it!
  5. Add the dried coriander and salt (amount dependent upon personal preference)

CAUTION: Wear gloves to do this or your fingers and hands will burn from the capsaicin (heat producing chemical) contained in the peppers.
