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!
A vegetarian twist on traditional couscous. Lighter and less overbearing than rich meaty sauces, the sweet and melting vegetables in this dish are pure heaven.
A cousin of couscous, these fat semolina balls are an Algerian classic. This vegetarian recipe substitutes the meat for a handful of spinach to create a low-fat yet nutritious meal.
Another comforting classic from Kabylie, the heartland of Algerian vegetarian recipes. This one couldn’t be easier!
