Eid Mubarak & Makrout

algerian makrout recipe
As-Salaamu Alaykum & Eid Mubarak to all my muslim readers

Eid al fitr is a day that comes directly after the month of Ramadan (the month of fasting) where Muslims all over the world celebrate, perform a special prayer, give gifts (especially to children) and....... EAT during the day alhamdulillah

It's traditional in most families to bake sweets in preparation for EID and i had planned on making several (not that they are needed) but i have several valid excuses but the main reasons are my children are recovering from a bout of summer cold and are extra needy also my husband request i make his good old favourite Makrout but after feedback earlier in the month from him and indirectly from his friends that Makrout need to be made with extra coarse semolina instead of coarse. I listened and complied to the requirements and i have to say it does make a difference to the texture you get a more granular hard exterior with a soft, sweet, succulent centre.
Also instead of making syrup to soak the makrout in i used honey which makes them, erm healthier! (well that's if you ignore the fact most honey bees are fed sugar these days)

I didn't make it to Maryam's virtual EID Party but you should hop along there now and check out what everyone brought along.

P.S. Please ignore the crack in the container i quickly took the photo before realising. Plus i can't bear to throw away things that are still usable but imperfect.

Eid Mubarak Asmaa,
I think these look even better than the previous, of course of the taste you are a better judge. And if you're not having extensive ingredients at hand, it is always okay to substitute. This is coming from the girl who used to use dinner spoons when she didn't have the proper equipment to measure ingredients etcetera lol
I pray your children (one is Hamza, isn't he?) recover soon In shaa Allah.

I agree Aiza they look better as I've made them a few more times since the first photos, you know what they say practice practice practice lol it's always hard making food for people that know how it should taste etc when you don't :) but alhamdulillah it's all a learning curve and I feel great knowing I got it right, this time.
Jazak Allahu khayrun yes Hamza, Sara and Zayd.
