so it`s that time of the year again and the peas are in season and so are broad beans ..... so all you will smell coming from ppl`s homes is misfoof ....... to those who dont know this it is cous cous with peas and broad beans steamed and mixed into cous cous with either butter or ghee or olive oil


in my house i end up doing three different ways  ... 1 is with olive oil as dh loves that ... the other is with butter as i cant stand olive oil and third is with butter and no steamed veg as two of my kids wont eat it that way .... and all of this is washed down with leban (butter milk)

but once summer comes in then it`s made with grapes



  1. Assalaamu Alaykum,

    I made some last week! Two ways in my house: 1) normal couscous with butter and raisins and 2) brown (the darker the better) couscous with peas and broad beans and olive oil - because I LOVE it that way! :)

  2. masha`allah sis ... i only make it with raisins in ramadan and on special occasion but it is with the sauce too ... here they will do it at weddings like that

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
