Khobz Dyal Smida, is it easy to pronounce the name of dish???lol..i enjoyed pronouncing the name and also enjoyed making this delicious and spongy semolina bread, as i told before am posting the famous semolina bread that i have prepared earlier, which i enjoyed with my eggplant dip...Moroccan cuisine have various numbers of breads and the moroccan women used to prepare their bread daily and early in the morning...One among those bread is this khobz dyal smida...Semolina is called as smida, pronounced as Smeeda in Moroccan Arabic...Moroccan cuisine is very much famous for their dish prepared with semolina..Semolina is used to make pasta, couscous and also for making flavourful and chewy bread.. This Semolina bread, is very much easy to prepare, this bread suite prefect for sandwiches,breakfast, tea time snacks or with tagines and stews....The more semolina used in this bread makes the bread more chewy and yellow in colour, i prepared this semolina bread as the recipe i found here says....i did the same way as the recipe post goes for...Needless to say that am sending this semolina bread to IAVW-Moracco guest hosted by Lavi, event started by Vaishali, also this bread goes to Madhuram's Low Fat Baking Event...
