Food Art 1105
The recipe that i will cook is one my favorite. It is actually one of the famous dishes in Morocco that is cooked regularly. it is called tajine " طجين". This recipe gets its name from the pan used for the cooking. The tajine is not only delicious, it is also healthy.
1 pound of chicken legs
1/2 pound of potatoes
1 pack of frozen peas and carrots
First, we put the tajine over the fire. Next, we put one half cup of olive oil. We cut the onions into small pieces and put them in the tajine for almost 10 min. Then, we cut one tomatoe into small pieces and put it with the onions. After we take the skin out of the chicken legs, we put them in the tajine with the onions. Next , we put one spoon of salt, one spoon of black paper, one spoon of cumin, not too much of garlic, one spoon of regular chili powder, and a little bit of cilantro. In fact, we should cut the cilantro and garlic into small pieces too. After we add all these, we shake everything well and close the tajine for 15 min. Next, we cut the potatoes like shown in the pictures below, and we cut the other tomato into slices. We add potatoes, carrots, peas, and the slices of tomato to the tajine. Finally, we close the tajine and let everything to be cooked for one hour. By the way the tajine should be eaten with bread.
