    Hi me again! I think this is the name of these paastrys, they are more like a crispy pankake and you can have them with honey ( i think that they are fed to women in Algeria after giving birth to get energy levels up) , or they can also be filled with tomato/fennel/onion & pepper sauce.
    They are made from fine semolina and thats as much as I can remember from my mother in law from Algers , she used the palm of her hand to flatten them out to a thin pancake before she cooked like a pancake ontop of hot flat irion. They are delicios and while i was In Algeria i ate every day .
    Anyone know the recipe? Ie tried alot of variations but cant get it right.
    thanks you Jools100

    You mentioned them being given to women who had just given birth, they are in some parts but the dish most famously given is M'shewsha, I also have my recipe for it posted here
