Itโ€™s no secret, I love bold flavourful food. These North African Chermoula meatballs are redolent of this type of cooking โ€“ exotically spiced and gutsy in character. The flavorings typify the earthy spices of North Africa with a playful pairing of savoury and sweet. Think apricots, peaches, even currants.

Chermoula is a North African spice combination of cumin, coriander, paprika, saffron, and cayenne pepper. Itโ€™s warm rather than fiery hot and can be used liberally on meats, chicken, and fish. Locally, you can find Chermoula at Food markets or Woolworths in the spice section.
