Hey everyone! Have you tried tajine, the popular dish from North Africa and the Middle East?
So why is it called tajine? Well, look at the shallow earthen pots in my photos here. This kind of container is "tajine" in local languages in North Africa. While in the Middle East it is called a maraq (meaning broth) or a qidra (name of the cooking pot).
The main ingredients for tajine normally include some of the following: beef, chicken, vegetables, nuts and dried fruits. I once posted a beef tajine when traveling in Morocco, and I am going to share my experience in learning how to cook chicken tajine in a workshop there.
The ones here are vegetable tajines. As you can see, there were tomatoes, onions, zucchini, potatoes, carrots and some herbs inside. Yummy~
They were being cooked on charcoal fire out of a small hotel with a restaurant on the ground floor. I stayed in this place in Midelt, a dry and arid town in central Morocco. The lunch smelled so good that it immediately drew my attention when I stepped out of the hotel. The setting was not fancy at all, but the steaming hot and bright-colored vegetables just looked more attractive against it.
This is my entry for Tasty Tuesday competition. Hope you enjoy (looking at) the delicacy! :)
