Schug is a Middle Eastern hot sauce. Originating in Yemeni cuisine and brought to Israel by the Yemenite Jewish people, the condiment is now a staple of Israeli cuisine.

Schug is made from fresh hot peppers seasoned with coriander, garlic and various spices. Red schug is made with red peppers and schug yarok (green schug) from green peppers
In Israel, schug is sometimes referred to by the generic term kharif (Hebrew: lit. "spicy"). It is a popular condiment at Israeli falafel and shawarma stands, and served with hummus.

The Jewish people of Yemen ascribed medicinal properties to chili pepper. According to Yemenite Jewish folklore, the they survived a great famine, subsisting on tomatoes, hilbeh and
chili peppers. According to another legend, a severe epidemic struck Yemen but they were spared due to their extensive use of these foods. The chili pepper plant was believed to
help the body withstand illness, improve vitality and aid digestion, as well as prevent and eliminate intestinal parasites.
