While Tunisian Five Spice Powder sounds like something the DEA looks for in your luggage at the airport, it’s really a simple blend of curry spices from North Africa. Its name is qalat daqqa in Arabic, and it contains the malagueta pepper, also known as the “grains of paradise.” The malagueta pepper is available from mail order spice companies, such as The Spice House, and this mixture is used to flavor lamb and vegetable dishes. If you want more background on other North and West African dishes to expand your culinary kung fu, check this out.
