Briouats recipe for ramadan dish.
One popular Moroccan Ramadan dish is Briouats, which are small, savory pastries that are often filled with meat or cheese. Here is a recipe for Briouats:
- 1 lb ground beef or lamb
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 package of phyllo dough (defrosted)
- Oil for frying
- In a large skillet, cook the ground meat and onion over medium heat until the meat is browned and the onion is translucent.
- Add the ginger, cinnamon, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper to the skillet and stir to combine.
- Remove the skillet from the heat and add the parsley and cilantro. Stir to combine.
- Cut the phyllo dough into strips that are about 2 inches wide.
- Take one strip and brush it lightly with melted butter.
- Place a spoonful of the meat filling at the bottom of the strip, then fold the strip over the filling diagonally to form a triangle.
- Continue folding the strip over the filling in a triangle shape until you reach the end of the strip.
- Repeat this process with the remaining strips of phyllo dough and meat filling.
- In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the Briouats in the oil and fry until they are golden brown on both sides.
- Remove the Briouats from the oil and place them on paper towels to drain excess oil.
- Serve the Briouats hot with a side of harissa or any other dipping sauce.
