Z'hug

Submitted by: SALTYCHOCOLATE

Introduction

Z'hug is a very spicey "relish" from Yemen. This is a compilation of different recipes that I found so I DO NOT claim it to be an authentic recipe. Comments and suggestions to make it more authentic are welcome and appreciated. Z'hug can used on meats or vegetables: it is a bit hot to be eaten on its own.
