Moraccan Chickpea Stew and Moraccan Mint Tea

Iam very late in posting my final entry to IAVW-Moracco. As I was busy(after a long time, iam mentioning the word busy.) taking my kid to playschool. Also i had guest's and isnt this enough to explain my busy schedule's. This Moraccan ChickPea Stew is another recipe that i got hooked, from Vaishali's blog. I loved these stew with Whole Wheat Bread. To prepare this delicious Moraccan stew, you got to have Harissa paste, which you can make it in a jiffy, with just a pre-planning of soaking the Red Chilli's for Two Hour's.

How to Make Moraccan Mint Tea?

Moraccan Tea

Tea is served during meal times in moracco. This is the drink, that is served, when the Moraccan's have guest's. Serving Mint Tea is considered as Hospitality. This is the Sweater Tea, with the flavour of Mint.

Frpm Wiki:

Tea is cleaned with boiling water before being dried. This removes dust from shipping and supposedly makes the tea less bitter. Tea and boiling water are combined, and may be boiled further for several minutes. After that, sugar and mint are added and mixed into a teapot with a long, curved spout. The sugar may also be combined with the tea and water in the first infusion, rather than with the mint after brewing. Using a traditional curved spout allows the tea to be poured into tiny glasses from a height of approximately half a meter to form a foamy head. It is then returned once or twice to the teapot for a good mix.

I loved the Tea with Ice-Cube's. Don't miss to try this Absolute Refreshing Tea.

Here is the Moraccan Feast, that goes on my part to IAVW-Moracco, event designed by Vaishali.

  12. Hi...
    The Moraccan Chickpea Stew is extremely spicy. Classic Moroccan Mint Tea is made by steeping green tea with spearmint leaves. Many families serve it more than once a day.
    Moroccan tea pots vary in size, but a small pot typically holds about a half liter (six glasses) of tea, while a larger pot holds approximately a liter (12 glasses).
