Meloui Bread

I hardly dented the huge bag of semolina we’ve got last week doing the semolina cake, so I’ve been going around trying to find more recipes to use it up.

One recipe that caught my eye was for a Moroccan semolina flatbread called a meloui. It gets folded and wrapped up in an unusual way that I had to go and look up on YouTube to understand how it was done.

So I followed the recipe and made the dough. OK OK: not totally true. I halved the recipe… then added the full amount of water. So that got thrown away (at least it used up more semolina!). Then I did it again with the proper amounts.

Once the dough had rested and been split up into balls I attempted to push out into a circle… and ended up with a reactangle. Later attempts were rounder and and less holey… honest!

Then rolled up…

Squish down and fry…

And we have meloui!

We’ll eat them with a chicken and green bean curry that’s been in the freezer for a while. Plus some dhal Soph cooked up as the amount of frozen curry was lacking.
