This one gave me a hard time but nothing is impossible! Presenting, Moroccon Msemen and Meloui from a kitchen in Yanbu!
When I first saw the making of the Msemen video, I was like – “this is insanely tough and why not fold like porotta or laacha if layers are all that we need?” But having done it more than once, I learnt two things – one, you can achieve the desired results with different approaches or even healthier versions by stripping off some main ingredients – but then, it would be better to call it something else. Right? Two, as an outsider, I need to first respect the culture and tradition of the cuisine I am attempting to recreate so it would only be fair if I try their true form. Agreed?
At first, I thought she was just being too kind and so really never thought of doing it as I lacked the courage or confidence to showcase my work in her recipe sanctuary! For any recipe that I want to try, I first check her blog, and if it is there – then there is no looking back! That is how much I love her space and her collection! 😛 But last week, she kinda gave me an ultimatum and said that she would stop visiting my blog, reading and commenting! 🙁 I thought she was just joking, but she demanded I give her a guest post asap. I begged and pleaded with her to stop harassing me but eventually, to save myself and my blog, I agreed to do a guest post for her. 🙁
