    Hajar, help with condiments/salad

    Hajar,
    I am having a Moroccan dinner, for women only, so I must keep heat at a minimum. So far, I have planned this:
    - Chicken tagine with olives and preserved lemons
    - Couscous (what flavor?)
    - Lemon rice
    - Harissa (can it be made mild) or Hajar's Tomatish


    I need a cold dish like a salad or cucumber/onion raita.
    And other condiments for sweet, cold, astringent, etc.
    Beverage: I found online, a recipe for spiced tea with boiled milk. Thought that would be neat in a teapot.
    A thin bread for dipping. Hajar, can I just use naan to keep it simple for the cook (me)? Or is there enough difference that I should use a Moroccan recipe? I know there are many online and on this site.

    I am thinking hummus/olives/peppers and wine before dinner would work. But that a starting soup would be too much food.

    Your expertise is most welcome. Thanks so much.
    Kathy

    Kathy your menu sounds great! I do have a question though....why do you ask for no heat due to cooking for women???

    Though I like hot stuff, some of the other women do not. So I will have a hot harissa (for me and for those who wish some) and a milder tomato condiment for the women who don't.

    Among my friends, most men like hot stuff and most women do not. There are exceptions of course, but this seems to be the norm.

    Hello Hajar,
    I hope your health issues are abating. So glad to see you're back. I would have emailed sooner, but didn't understand your email as you posted it the first time. But I'll use this forum so others can benefit from your suggestions.

    I do know that some of my selections were Indian. Such as the raita, the naan, and the tea.

    Since then, I've found a M. mint tea recipe and will serve that after the meal. (I even have beautiful blue and gold tea glasses)

    But as for the raita and naan, I wanted somthing Moroccan that is "like" those two things. Such as a cooling raita-type of side and an easy (perhaps already baked) bread similar to naan. And can I use naan? Is there a tremendous difference?

    I also read in one of your threads, that hummus is NOT of Moroccan origin. That surprized me.

    So here's my question. What to serve with a chicken tagine w/preserved lemons and olives.
    - What kind of couscous
    - What kind of rice (just plain steamed was my second decision)
    - A raita-type of cooling side
    - Your Tomatish perhaps
    - Harissa


    What condiments I can put in little bowls on the table that would coordinate?

    What to mix with the Harissa to create one that isn't firey-hot.

    Your help is appreciated Hajar.

    PS - I'll have a tagine cooker and my heat diffuser so I'm going to cook the tagine on the stove top. Will that make a difference compared to oven-baking? Don't lift the lid or something?

    Regards,
    Kathy

    Thanks Hajar, for the great information.
    I better re-think this dinner menu (like I think I should start from scratch).


    What would you suggest as ONE good compliment to the chicken tagine?

    Hmm..mmm.... it seems that I couldn't have been this far off track if I tried. I'll definitely rethink this.

    Thanks again Hajar, for imparting your expertise.
