Harira is a typical morrocan soup especially made for Ramadan ( the holy month in which muslims fast everyday from dawn to sunset). This special soup is made with tomatoes, chickpeas and lentils… And since I’m a moroccan, I thought about sharing with you this recipe that is close to be a culinay culture for us.
Ready in 1 h
- 100 g lamb
- 700g tomatoes ( turned into juice)
- 1 Chopped onion
- 1/3 cup Parsley
- 1/4 cup celery
- 1/3 cup Coriander
- 1/3 lentils ( rinsed and drained)
- 2/3 cup chickpeas ( left to soak overnight and peeled)
- 1 tbs flour
- 1 big potato (peeled and diced)
- 1.5 l water
- 1 tbp olive oil
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 tbs salt
- In a Cocotte, add olive oil, lamb, onions, turmeric, ginger , salt, pepper, diced potatoes, chickpeas and lentils. Pour water and cook for 20 min.
- Meanwhile, using a blender, mix the coriander, celery and parsley. You’ll have a green mixture.
- Seperate the potato from the other ingredients and mix it with flour and some water.
- Pour the green mixture, the tomato sauce and the potatoe mixture and cook for 20 min while stirring occasionally so that the flour won’t stick to the bottom.
