Harcha Bread-Moroccan Semolina Bread!

Women in Men’s life..

I was born,

a woman was there

to hold me. -My Mother-

I grew as a child,

A woman was there

to care for me, to

play with me. -My Sister-

I went to school,

A woman was there

to help me learn. -My Teacher-

I became depressed, whenever i was lost.

A woman was there

to offer a shoulder. -My Wife-

I became tough,

A woman was there

to melt me. -My Daughter-

I am dying,

A woman is there

to absorb me in. -My Motherland-



If you are a Man,

Value every Woman…

If you happen to

be a Woman, be

Proud to be a Woman..



HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY........By Rahul
Now coming to my recipe............................
Harcha bread hails from Moroccan Cuisine, pan fried bread made with Semolina, Sugar,butter and milk...Looks a bit like an English muffins, it is a thinner and and texture is more like a cornbread...In morocco mostly served at breakfast or at tea time... 

You will need:-

  • 1 cup Semolina

  • 11/2 tbsp Sugar

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • Pinch of salt

  • 60 g butter(melted)

  • 50ml milk
Method:-

First mix all the dry ingredients, now add melted butter and mix with the hands.  Mixture should be crumbly and moist.

Now add milk bit by bit to make a soft and moist dough that can be packed in to a mound.  Now shape the dough in to a small balls and leave it to rest for few minutes.  Now flatten them, don't keep to thick, or the dough won't cook all the way through.

Heat a non stick pan on a low heat for few minutes.  Add the Harcha to the pan.


Cook for about 8-10 minutes eah side, untill light golden colour.keep checking to be sure the harcha aren't colouring too quickly, as they need time to cook all the way through.

 Harcha best served warm with jam, cheese or honey.  My kids likes with maple syrup.
Tea is the perfect accompaniment to Harcha.
Enjoy!!
Sending this recipe to 5th mediterranen cooking event -Morocco by Tobias.also to JFI-Breakfast hosted by Suma, started by Indira.

Have a Happy International Womens Day(8th March)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
