*tagella*

and how to prepare it :-)
first of all, prepare the *sauce*...made from chopped onions, green pepper, carrots, tomatoes and parsley....add a hint of salt and cumin, water, a hand full of  little *lentils* and sundried, salted meat...
stir well and boil the sauce on the fire :)
next step: made a doug for the bread from wheat semolina & flour, water and salt...knead well... :-)
prepare a hollow in the center of the fireplace...
put the prepared *bread* on the *hot* sand...
 
cover it carefully with sand and *glowing* charcoal, let it bake in the hot sand...
 
after a while turn it once and let it bake again...wait...may you want to enjoy inbetween a glass of  *atay*?
when the baking time is finished...I do not know how long it takes exactly, probably 30 minutes...remove the sand with a knife...
 rinse it carefully...
start breaking the bread in pieces...
little ones, please!
add tons of *fresh* garlic and warm up the sauce on the fireplace....yes, you are reading right...I probably ate never in my life before that much garlic as in the desert :-)
 add the *sauce* to the prepared bread, stir well again...
 
sprinkle all over olive oil and spicy harissa.....*tagella* is definitely one of the most delicious dishes I ever had!

what a bliss!

  1. That sounds seriously delicious, Petra - I might try to recreate that dish at home, though I know it could never taste as good as bread baked in the sand of the Sahara, and food cooked over a fire! How many cloves of garlic do you think they used? I love all those ingredients - I am hungry now!
