Dona Maria Mole Paste is a best-loved kitchen staple in Mexico. This sauce has a velvety, unctuous texture. It has wonderfully contrasting sweet, savoury flavours and subtle spices - Pasilla and Ancho chillies plus cinnamon, allspice and cumin.
It's fair to say that a dish of mole is not very photogenic, but boy does it taste good!
This paste provides the base and it's best when combined with dry roasted tomatoes, onions and garlic, blitzed to a pulp and some stock, ideally from a poached chicken.
