Playing with Dough
I have been seeing recipes for a pastry called chebbakia. The form intrigues me but I’m not in the mood for something so sweet, fried, since I am mentally preparing to fast. I wonder if they come out like a kind of doughnut. But like I said, nothing that rich for me right now, still that form…. So I tried it out with my regular bread dough.
I should have put an egg glaze or something to give them a bit of colour. The hardest part was taking a photo with my left hand—the button is on the wrong side of the camera.
Soon the fasting for Ramadan will begin. As I watch what goes in my mouth, may I also watch what comes out of it.
