Harira and Nihari are the same? :D :D

 

Isn’t Nihari an Indian Dish and Harira Moroccan?

Assalamu Alaikum, There is another kind of Harira that we make in India, it is nothing like what Kaneeza posted, more like a sweet soup made with flour, butter and milk and some simple spices. If this is what you want Br. Younes Ibn Abd' al-Aziz, then I will post the recipe, it is simple and easy. My mother always made it for us on rainy days or if we had cold or fever, because it would be warm, delicious, soothing and nourishing. Still miss it, going to make it now inshaAllah.

 

Sis. Kaneeza I am going to try your recipe soon too, looks yummy.

 

Wassalamu Alaikum, umAhmad.

If you are after the North African Harira (I suspect by your user name that you are) then here is a recipe from a Moroccan friend:

INGREDIENTS:

 

450g cubed lamb meat

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons margarine

1 stick chopped celery

1 onion, chopped

1 red onion, chopped

1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander

2 teaspoons of chopped mint leaves

2 (14 1/2 oz) cans diced tomatoes

7 cups water

3/4 cup green lentils

1 (15 oz) can chick peas, drained

4 oz vermicelli pasta

2 eggs, beaten

1 lemon, juiced

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Place the lamb, turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon, ginger, cayenne, butter, celery, onion, coriander and mint leaves into a large soup pot over a low heat. Stir frequently for 5 minutes. Pour tomatoes (reserve juice) into the mixture and let simmer for 15 minutes.

Pour tomato juice, 7 cups water, and the lentils into the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer. Let soup simmer, covered, for 2 hours.

About 10 minutes before serving turn the heat to medium-high, place chickpeas and vermicelli (noodles) into the soup, let cook about 10 minutes (until vermicelli is al dente). Stir in lemon and eggs, let eggs cook 1 minute.

 

Hope that helps :D

Salam Alaikum Everyone,

 

I have tried to make Harira a few times however it turns out to be thin or is to lumpy. I add flower which is supposed to make it more creamy however it is what turns out to make it lumpy.

 

Is there a certain way to add the flower or am I completely doing the wrong thing?

 

Thanks,

Sister Heather

Salaam -

 

I realize this topic is somewhat old, and you've probably figured this out by now, but here is a good way to add flour:

1) Put the flour in a separate small bowl,

2) Add a spoonful or so of the broth to the flour,

3) whisk them together,

and then

4) Stir this into the rest of the soup.

 

Should eliminate the lumps :sl: Hope this helps.

If you don't want th soup to get lumpy, you should take a bowl - putt in the flower - some water on top and mix with a fork. Keep adding water an mixing till it is smooth. After that, take a large spoon and stir the soup while you pour the batter mixture in it. Make sure that you keep stirring for a minute.
