Harcha – A Moroccan Semolina Biscuit by Partaste
Harcha is simple Moroccan semolina biscuits enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack on their own or, even better, alongside a freshly brewed cup of mint tea. Ingredients vary sightly from recipe to recipe as do the size of the harcha, ranging from small individual biscuits to a large cake shared among many.
Traditionally, the recipe for harcha called for olive or vegetable oil, and while some people still make them that way, most have replaced the oil with butter, making harcha a particularly decadent treat.
Harcha can be served in a variety of ways, with both sweet and savory fillings, but our personal favorites are filled with fresh cheese or drizzled with a syrup made from a mixture of melted butter and honey.
