    OOH Um Safia!! Are you my Go-To person for recipes? we've been looking for a couple that have thus far been obnoxiously elusive...

    Somali mufo (mufa?) which I just saw you posted a recipe for Canjero which is the same as Injera. I am under the impression from talking to many Somalis that mufa is different from injera. They didn't speak highly of injera. They all said about mufa "my (mother/wife/sister/grandmother/aunt makes it but I don't know how." GRR. Everybody I asked. I even went into a Somali restaurant & asked everybody there including the owers. of course the 1 person who may have known was out for the day.

    And "a common & popular dish called 'keema'".

    Thanks for posting!!

    Yesyesyes!!! That's it!!!

    Thank you sooo much, shukran!

    This is so much work, I watched my MIL making it... But one day, I will try to make it for my Algerian husband. We have our 9th wedding day this month, so maybe...

    I will definitely try to get my little son involved!

    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks for posting this Um Safia. I also made this with my mother-in-law (I also call her Yeema!) a few years ago and forgot all about it until I read the part about the golf balls and it brought it all back. My husband loves this. We made a spicy red sauce to serve this with. I don't remember the apricots but I do remember harissa in the sauce.

    Thanks also for reviewing my Garantita and Dolma recipes!!

    Hi Elmotoo!

    I'm very hapy to help where I can! I'm fortunate enough to have lived in Algeria and travelled a lot through Africa so have quite a good knowledge of the food. I also have morrocan, lebanese, palastinian, iraqi and eqyptian friends to give me tips....lucky me! icon_lol.gif

    Yes, muufo/muffo/mufo is very different to canjero/injera. There was a huge Somali community where we used to live but unfortunately we didn't keep in touch icon_cry.gif

    Let me know anytime if we can help!

    Rezika.

    Hi Happy Mom,

    firstly, you're very welcome for the reviews - both great recipes (cooked garanteta for DH last night infact!).

    Yes chakhchoukha is a big favourite of mine. My husband did correct me though in that the apricots are not served with the red sauce icon_redface.gif but are commonly eaten with the chakhchoukha in various areas of Algeria.

    Salam, Rezika.
