Moroccan Ksra-Bread

Recipe by Rita1652

Leavened flatbread with semolina and anise seed typically baked but I grilled for an outdoor party and it was fabulous. This goes along with any spicy thing you cook up in a tagine. Or serve with dips. Bake or grill.

We all enjoyed this bread very much! That hint of anise seed was the perfect amount.
I grilled two loaves on a grill pan and baked two loaves. I liked the texture of the bread
better when grilled but most of the sesame seeds fell off when I pan grilled. Baking the
bread made them puffier but at least the sesame seeds stayed in place. I used part black sesame seeds, too for color contrast. Will make again! Reviewed for Veg Tag/June.
