Somali sisters, help me out :)

Recommended Posts

:D wa rahmatuAllah wa barakatuh

 

Yesterday I went to a wedding party and one of foods served there was this very yummy bread. It tasted like sourdough, and it kinda felt... almost damp, but not wet. One side was smooth and soft and the other side has lots of holes in it and more sponge-like. I really like this bread and I've had it at other somali weddings before, and want to try making it. Does anyone know what this bread is called and what the recepie is for it? Jazakallahu khairan! :D

lol!

 

Do you mean: lahooh, or canjeera? Different names same thing. :grin:

 

It's flat innit?

 

hm...I don't have a recipe, I just make it from my memory, flour, a little salt, yeast and water, make the batter like a pancake batter. Make it just as smooth I mean. And you should have a good, good, pan it has to be dry, no butter, oil etc. Warm it up and pour some of the batter into the pan, make it spread a little, like so that you can have the small holes. :grin: and put a lid on it, then in a few seconds it's done. It's rather difficult to make the first times...think it took me years to learn....haha, but I wasn't making it everyday or anything, just sometimes to help my mom.

 

not much help but that's all I can do for now.... :shuriken:

 

salaam

YES!!! Canjeera, that's what it's called. :D sis

 

So you don't let the yeast rise at all or anything? Just let it do its thing while cooking? :P I think I'll try making it, :D. But I'm never good with somali food, too much guessing at first, lol.

:D for the offer sis, but I'm guessing you live in UK. :D and I live in Amreeka. And none of my somali friends know how to make canjeera either. ahh well I'll burn the kitchen down in my own house, I swear I'll get it eventually. That's prolly how the first loaf was made anyway. :P Sis :P

Us somalis and out food!! we certainly do love food!! As topics gets going at the mention of food :D :P.

 

Onto how to make Canjeero. Well there are 2 kinds..one is called canjeero and the evening canjeero is called malawax..i bet you gus dont know that.

 

Morning Canjeero:

Get the flour mix with water, sugar..Make a dough. Not a thick one and not very liquid. It has be somewhere in the middle, where you can easily pour it from a small cup. Get tefal pans. fill the tiny cup with mixture, pour it on the pans, and use the small cup, spreading the dough on the pan. It has to be psreaded thinly. Cover the pan as the steam will cook the top part of the canjeero. When some parts of the canjeers is reddish brown, you get a knife (some experts use their fingers :P), and unstick the cajeero..viola!!

Well I tried to make morning canjeera just now. It wasn't too bad for a first try, but good thing I just made a small batch :D I'm wondering what I did wrong, I know I needed more sugar. But the cooked canjeera had a rubbery texture to it, except for the sides that were brown. It's edible but not as enjoyable as it is at my friends' houses :P Alhamdulillah at least I'm learning to cook in time for college and marriage :D though

Did I forget to tell you the yeast has to RISE? It's done rising when you see those nice little holes in the batch :P

 

 

sorry sis resend, sarcasm is what I do best :D

 

Ya, somali food is all about guessing that's why everybody cooks different kind of sauces and other kind of foods even though they have the same name.

 

 

Canjera is hard to make, like I said, it took me ages b4 I got good at making it. :grin:

 

 

wsalaam :D
