Hi Suverny71,

Hope that you and your family are all in good health !
Chorba can be bought in most halal butchers...........Its like harrissa, my husband likes it really hot being from Nabeul and thats where we buy it from..........Morrissons sells a small jar that says harrissa on it but it really is not like the real Cap bon
Take care

We had some merguez sausages made by our butcher here in Gloucestershire - he used harissa from sainsburys, but it was not harissa as we know it. We now stock up in Tunisia.

If you ever go to Djerba, let me know. There is an EXCELLENT restaurant there that serves only authentic Tunisian food and is very reasonably priced. I think I made my hubby take me there every day when we went to Djerba! :D
