The five cities of Algeria’s Mzab region all have their own version of these indulgent savoury pancakes. They might be fat or thin, soft or crunchy, round or square…. But the basic elements are always the same: a hearty meat filling made with onions, tomatoes and scrambled eggs, wrapped inside a semolina pancake. In-keeping with the spirit of this dish of many faces, here’s yet another version; HappyHmisa’s veggie maghlouga!
