Harissa is a spicy North African condiment of chilli and spices. Recent research has shown countries with a high chilli consumption, such as Mexico and India, tend to have decreased rates of cancer. Chillies also boost our metabolism, helping to burn fat and reduce feelings of hunger. If you don’t like things too spicy, replace 1 teaspoon of the harissa with 1 teaspoon cumin seeds. If you don’t have an ovenproof frying pan, wrap the handle of your pan in several layers of foil.
