Berkoukes (Aich) or Semolina Pasta Bullets with Vegetables

Published on by couscousandpudding




In my native country at this time of year we often say nothing is better than a plate of Berkouk or Aich  to create a warm atmosphere around our table. Small grains of semolina that melt in your mouth in a rich  tomato sauce with seasonal vegetables of the season, this preparation is as appreciated by adults as kids. You can prepare this dish the same way with chicken  and add dried lentils, peas or dried broad beans. Try it and  you will agree with me that there is no better way to melt my snowman !!!!???? lol.
