    Cookie16's Note:

    I am not sure if that is how you spell it! I saw the recipe in "The Great Book of Couscous" and they called it Karantika. This is popular in Algeria (and made in my house a few times per week). It is best served sliced with bread and a bit of harissa or on crackers. Baking time can be decreased to make a mushier version. A food processor is used to make sure you get a smooth combination of ingredients. Chick pea flour can be found in Indian Grocery Stores. It is called "Besan".

      Wow, this turned out so moist and creamy... almost like cheese! The flavor actually reminded me of Cheetos for some reason, which I liked. I just ate this as a side dish without any bread- very tasty by itself.

      Let it sit in the refrigerator a day, then cut thin slices, fry them in oil or olive oil and pour a tomato sauce with harissa over it and eat like fried pasta...not healthy at all, but it's so good !

      Adding a couple of teaspoons of cumin with the mixture before cooking should give it a yum yum taste
