520- Gluten Free Harcha /حرشا بدون غلوتين
Harcha dough ingredients:
100 g corn semolina
50 g corn flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
Step 1: Preparing the Batter
1- In a large bowl, combine all the dry dough ingredients. Mix by hand until all ingredients are well incorporated.
2- Add the olive oil, and continue mixing until all ingredients are well coated and the mixture has a sandy texture.
3- Add water, little by little, while mixing. The goal is to get a batter that has a texture similar to porridge.
4- Let the dough rest for 20 minutes before shaping it.
Step 2: Shaping the Harcha
5- Dust a flat surface with corn flour and place the dough mixture, shape it into a circle with medium thickness and cover it with flour.
6- Continue shaping the circle while adding more corn flour until the batter is not sticky anymore.
7- Now using a cup, cut circles within the dough to make individual small harcha breads.
8- Another easy way to shape harcha breads, form small balls with the dough and roll each one of them in corn flour. Flatten the ball between the palm of your hands while sprinkling more corn flour until the ball does not feel wet or sticky anymore.
Step 3: Cooking the Harcha
9- On medium heat, warm up a nonstick pan. Once hot, place the individual harcha circles on the pan.
10- Cook the first side for 5 minutes then flip the harcha and continue cooking the second side for another 5 minutes, until both sides have a beautiful golden color.
11- Serve immediately, warm, with honey, goat cheese, or any filling of your choice!
