Muhammara with mint

Muhammara is a hot pepper dip originally from Aleppo, Syria and now found in many places in Anatolia and the Levant.

Its principal ingredients are usually fresh or dried sweet peppers, ground walnuts, breadcrumbs, and olive oil. It may also contain garlic, salt, lemon juice, pomegranate syrup, and sometimes spices (e.g. cumin). It may be garnished with mint leaves.

Muhammara is eaten as a dip with bread or a spread for toast. It can also be used as a spicy sauce for kebabs, grilled meats and fish. The Lebanese also eat it as a spread on toast.

Muhammara is referred to as Acuka in western Turkey while southeastern regions call it Muhammara.
