Mixed Vegetable Pongal - Version 2

Simple to make my today's post is inspired from Harini's post, though i have posted already vegetable pongal, this post is different from my version. As much as like usual venpongal, this mixed vegetable pongal takes very less time and quick to prepare. A complete, nutritious breakfast dish to enjoy with your favourite side dish or else with chutneys. Prepared quickly in pressure cooker, you can finish this fantastic dish easily with less efforts. Definitely a comforting meal, we just enjoyed this pongal with spicy coconut chutney.

Khobz Mzaweq/Vegan Moroccan Decorated Bread

Though i dont want to repeat often, i couldnt stop myself to say that i love baking breads at home, especially breads from different cuisine. Whenever i get a chance to cook from a different cuisine, i always look for a special breads from that particular cuisine. Am running this week's blogging marathon with 'Moroccan recipes' as theme, obviously i looked for a special bread from this cuisine. While googling, i crossed this Khobz Mzaweq, i immediately gathered all the ingredients and baked this incredible bread. Though the original recipe used an egg in dough and an egg yolk to bring the shiny look to the bread, i skipped it completely as eggless and definitely as a vegan bread.

Lemkhenfer/Moroccan Wheat Flour Pancakes

If you have tried already your hands with Baghrir aka Moroccan 1000holes pancakes, my today's recipe will definitely please you. Baghrir, these pancakes are prepared either with all purpose flour or fine semolina, however the authentic one always goes for the finest semolina. The speciality of this pancakes is they are cooked only on one side,this gives the light,soft,spongy,tender texture with a beautiful honeycomb like appearance to this delicious pancakes. But Lemkhenfer is as much as like younger sister to Baghrir. Baghrir are cooked on one side, while Lemkhenfer is cooked on both sides.These pancakes can be made in large quantity and can be conserved in fridge, but dont reheat it in microwave oven or a toaster, just heat them in a hot pan and enjoy.

Moroccan Meloui/Moroccan Round Pancakes/Melwi

Moroccan cuisine is typically a mix of Arabic, Andalusian, Berber and Mediterranean cuisines with a slight European and Subsaharan influence. And i love their cuisine very much, obviously if i get a chance to cook their dishes at home, i wont hesitate a second to prepare them at home. Am kick starting this week's blogging marathon with 'Moroccan Special' as theme. For the first day of this week's blogging marathon, i couldnt resist to prepare this super flaky round pancakes aka Meloui/Melwi.Moroccan Meloui is a flaky pancakes prepared prominently with fine semolina and all purpose flour with yeast. Once kneaded as dough and doubled in volume, this yeasted dough is flattened as much as thin. The meloui dough calls the rolling and layering as much as like South Indian parottas.
