Delicious Hercha for breakfast!

Posted on

 Hercha is a semolina bread and has its origins in Morocco. I have been trying to make Hercha for long. And after a number of failed experiments I came across a perfect recipe  by Chef Sousou.  

 

Hercha

Here is my version.

 Ingredients:

3 cups coarse semolina

½ cup flour

¼ cup oil

Handful of sugar

1 tbsp yeast

1 tbsp baking powder

1-1 ½ cups of water approximately

Pinch of salt

1 tsp sesame and cumin seeds

Hercha, semolina bread

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 C.

Mix in the ingredients, and knead gently to make soft dough.

Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.

Make into 4 balls. Roll generously into dry semolina and  shape into a bun.

Using a sharp knife; carefully make cross marks on top of each bun and transfer to a cookie sheet.

Bake until golden.

Makes 4 Hercha, 4 inches in diameter.

Serve warm with butter or jam.
