خبز المْحْراشْ/Moroccan Bread Mahrash / Pain Marocain Mahrach / Pain à la semoule d'orge (Khobz L'mahrach)!
One of my favourite places to visit is the souk (local market), it is always an interesting place to wander. I just like walking through the grand bazaar, the narrow streets and enjoy the smell of freshly baked bread drifts from fran (communal ovens), and all those aromatic, exotic, colourful spices. The place is filled with vendors, very friendly who bargain with a smile on their faces, and little boys running, with school-bags bouncing on their backs, all grins and full of energy, and women carrying wassla (wood tray) of bread on their heads, and old men selling bundles of fresh mint, absinthe, coriander, parsley and of course Mahrash bread. The souk will not be complete without Mahrash! Mahrash is a very popular type of bread in Morocco, especially in winter. It is made from barley grits, other mixture of flour, olive oil and a touch of cumin. The word "Mahrash" means "rough or coarse look" in Moroccan Darija, some call it "Khobz L'harsh&quo
