For the alphabet O we have a choice do it with Oman or OMAN in our Mega Blogging Marathon !!
Come on can we not have some more countries with O?
Cuisine of Oman is a mixture of several staples of Asian foods. Food basically revolves around chicken, fish, and lamb, with rice as the staple food. Omani food is a rich mixture of spices, herbs and marinades.
Omani food is different for different regions of Oman but the staple food is curry, cooked meat, rice, and vegetables.
Soups are also common and are usually made from chicken, lamb, and vegetables (e.g., smoked eggplant). (This I need to check).
So far Oman I could not find any street food but then somewhere I saw this bread being made. It was a video of some fair and I loved this bread. I just caught the name Khubz, which is bread in Omani.
I searched and was lucky to find the Times of Oman featuring the bread called QuroosAsal
I quote here what Ms.S. Kamal has said in her write up,” Quroos, which means circle in Arabic language, is a bread baked by many tribal people to celebrate the birth of a child in the family. She said that many people in Oman as well as the Gulf mark the festive event by making the honey bread.”
But the actual recipe I got here .
Loved it so much that I had to make it. The original recipe said use maida but I used whole wheat flour. I scaled down the recipe to get only two of these beauties. As you can see I need some practice before I get the perfect smooth layer. But that is for later.
Needless to say these were done in a hurry and were finished by yours faithfully for breakfast( but will taste yum with any curry) as I did not expect a warm reception from the family,for they seemed like Neer Dosa only made from wheat flour!!
Later when Apeksha, my elder one asked me what I am making for O I mentioned that I had finished making O!
“How did I not get a taste? When was this? Where was I?” She will make a great Police Inspector, I know!!
My sheepish replies did not satisfy her. Needless to say I need to make them again.
Ingredients for the QuroosAsal:
- ½ kg whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- water as needed
For the filling:
- Grated cheese Or Honey
- Remove from the griddle after about 30 seconds.
- Makes about 30, enough for a meal for four.
