Moroccan Semolina Patties

Harcha are Moroccan semolina patties with a crisp surface and soft centre. Honey, jam or almond paste make this gustatory experience just perfect.

Moroccan Semolina Patties


350 g of fine semolina
1 tbs sugar
1 envelope (11 g) baking powder
1 tsp salt
100 g vegetable margarine, melted
1.5 dl Dream Almond

1. Take a bowl and mix together the semolina, sugar, baking powder and salt. Then add the margarine while stirring. Finally add the vegetable drink.

2. Let stand for 5 minutes.

3. Heat a non-stick pan. Divide the dough into small balls. Place a ball in a ring (a cookie cutter of about 6 cm) and flatten. Reduce the heat. Cook the patty about 5 minutes per side. Repeat until you have used all the balls.

Serve these harchas with honey, halva, almond paste or fruit compote.

Tip: use only the fine semolina.
