Moroccan rugs and handcraft are Baboosh specialty but we also know how to cook delicious Moroccan food and today we are sharing with you the recipe of one of our favorite Moroccan cakes: Harsha.
Being confined at home is an opportunity for all of us to have new activities and learn new things. What about trying Moroccan food? Harsha is a Moroccan cake we eat either for breakfast or as an afternoon snack along with Moroccan mint tea (yeah, we looove mint tea and drink it all day long).
I like to eat my harsha with cottage cheese but you are free to add jam, honey, butter or nothing :)
To prepare Harsha, you will need:
- 1 heavy pan (use the heaviest one you have)
- 1 jar lid (any size)
- 1 1/3 cup of fine semolina
- 1/3 cup of regular semolina
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of oregano
- 6 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of yeast mixed with 1 teaspoon of sugar and a little bit of warm water
- 1/2 cup of warm water
- Mix all dry ingredients.
- Add olive oil and the yeast you have mixed with sugar and warm water.
- Add the warm water slowly and mix with your fingers until incorporated.
- Heat the pan
- Apply oil on the lid.
- Sprinkle a small amount of regular semolina on the lid
- Fill the lid with the preparation
- Sprinkle a small amount of regular semolina on top
- Invert onto the pan
- Cook each side for 4 minutes

Bon appétit :)
