I have made 2 different versions at work, both made in a food processor:

Charmoula #1:

Blend together in the food processor:

1 roasted serrano chile
2/3 cup chopped cilantro
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sweet paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder (standard blend)
6 Tablespoons peanut oil or olive/canola blend
Juice of 1 lemon

Fold in:

1/2 tsp chopped preserved lemon
salt to taste

Charmoula #2 (large quantity):

Process in food processor until finely chopped:

1.024# peeled fresh ginger
0.500# peeled garlic cloves
0.450# cilantro, mostly leaves
0.450# parsley, mostly leaves, preferably Italian flat-leaf

Add to food processor:

1 cup olive oil

Process until mixture looks like pesto. Transfer to a clean container and stir in:

2 1/2 cups olive oil
0.046# ground cumin
0.020# cayenne

(Sorry about the measurements; that's because of the electronic scales we used. :( )
