I’m delighted to be back a third year at Lubna Karim’s blog Yummy Food as part of her Ramadan event – Joy from Fasting to Feasting.
This year I’m bringing these delicious North African cookies Makrout / Makroudh.
Better known in their diamond-shaped form, Rolled Makrout otherwise known as Makrout Roulé have the same superior taste as the original and are a little more appealing to the eye.
For those of you that follow the blog and know I’m here in Algeria, we’ve decided to make it a permanent stay ma shaa Allah. Yes, Ramadan for the first time in a Muslim country and the heat let me tell you is on another level!!
Since writing the guest post I’ve discovered that my husband’s family and possibly many families in Algeria don’t actually make any sweets until the end of Ramadan – in preparation for EID. Instead Qalb El Louz and Zlabiya etc are bought in. Of course everything else is homemade, including the bread most days.
I’d like to tell you I’ve been taking endless amount of photos of food etc but I haven’t, somehow I haven’t felt it’s been appropriate especially as I’ve done very little cooking since being here. I’m getting culinary trained in the ways of the Algerian woman, where they seem to do everything by eye, taste or touch without accurate measurements and somehow everything tastes superlative.
More from me another day, Ramadan Mubarak!
