algerian paratha

so the name says it i set out to make paratha and ran out of time as dh arrived home early and couldnt wait to eat so i cut the time in half and this is what i came out with

well the pastry was

3 cups of flour
a pinch of salt
1/2 tbsps of oil (i added 3 )
water (i just poured until til i had a soft dough


mince ( as much as you like )
i small onion cut finely
three cloves of garlic
pepper / salt / cumin / Cinnamon
and parsley (a hand ful)

once i mixed the ingredients for the pastry i oiled it and placed it to the side for 20 mins normally after this i should roll out into discs. Brush with melted butter and roll into a sausage which you then knot and leave to rest for another 20 minutes but i ran out of time so i just took it from when i oiled it and made small balls and rolled them out

i place the filling on one half and then covered with the other half and then roll the rolling pin over it and placed on my hot plate ( tajin)


  1. Selamun aleykum my sister.
    Algeria looks very tasty dishes...

  2. wa alikum asalam sis

    jazak`allah khair for your comment i really happy that you like my blog

  3. They look great masha'Allah. Just a quick Q; why are you supposed to knot the dough and leave it to rest like that??

  4. well i`m not sure thats the way kate does it .... but i would imagine to allow the butter to soak in .... i made them last night and masha`allah they turned out much better except my tajin was making them a little black i need to give it a good scrub down and re oil it so improve it

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup
