Minced meat Fritters or Maakouda in Sauce
El Mbattane المبطن
During the month of Ramadan, I love everything that is croquettes, fritters or maakouda (cauliflower fritters recipe here), I was going to prepare an Hachis Parmentier for yesterday’s dinner but I thought it will be too dry for dinner so without hesitation I prepared this very appetising dish . You will say oh more kilos, but hey I will move on strict diet, grilled meat and steamed vegetables after Ramadhan, lol
