Saltah, the national dish of Yemen is a simple stew flavoured with a mix of spices known as hawayji - a blend of black pepper, caraway, green cardamon, turmeric and saffron. On its own it’s a fairly humble dish but the flavours are hugely elevated with the addition of two very unusual condiments - hilbeh, which provides a tangy freshness and zhug, which provides lots of fiery heat.
