Zhoug has its origins in Yemeni cuisine. It can be quite spicy, but the additional herbs and spices in the recipe make this one of my favourite accompaniments.

It pairs really well with the unctuous, savoury aubergine. Pomegranate molasses is one of my favourite ingredients too; it has a rich sweetness that is so well balanced with a rounded acidity.
