In my family, we all greatly enjoy the Mediterranean cuisine. Being vegetarians this cuisine offers a wide variety of dishes which are all so flavorful and fresh. Muhamara is a dip served with pita bread and I was recently introduced to this lovely dip at a Mediterranean restaurant. Here I present my version of the muhamara.


  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 5-6 pieces of sun dried tomatoes
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 tsps of strong chilli powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 slice of bread


Roast the bell peppers on a high flame till charred and wash off the peel in cold water. Deseed the peppers and chop them roughly.
Blend everything together to a smooth consistency and refrigerate. Before serving bring to room temperature and garnish with extra virgin olive oil and some more pomegranate seeds.
Enjoy with freshly baked pita.
