    Dernawy Hasaa Mix

    when it comes to Libya, the kitchen is divided by east and west side, and its surprisingly different on so many levels, each side is influced by a different type of culture, Egyptian and Turkish for the east and Tunisian and Jewish for the west, mostly they have same types of dishes, serves same meals but they cook slightly different with some east and west special dishes. since i’m a mix of both sides ( eastern father and western mother ) i do both sides cooking, and i admit i have my own favorites from both! soups are 100% different, in the east side ( Darna city specifically ) they…

    Peri Peri grilled chicken sandwiches

    OK so to be honest i’m not a big fan of spicy food, so i make my peri peri sauce medium hot, its just i think when its too spicy or lets say too hot it kills the flavor, its more like a fire in my mouth and i taste NOTHING lol so anyways, i used the sauce to marinate the chicken, it became super tender, grilled it for like 3 minutes on each side and the taste was amazing, sour, hot and moist chicken. i have posted a recipe on my super easy flat bread, typical Arabic bread that i usually use as a quick solution for sandwiches or…

    basic dough

    a perfect dough that remains soft after baking has been a nightmare for me, i tried soooo many recipes, different ingredients and even different baking ways, i kept failing in getting the result i was wishing for, a soft dough i can fill with anything and stays soft !! anyways, finally i found it, i have to say the Yogurt in this dough works like magic, adding BP does the job too beside the yeast, so i just fill it with what so ever i have in hand and shape it as i desire for the occasion, tuna, spinach or even feta cheese will do fine. its my basic dough!…

    sunflower seeds bread

    this bread surprised me to be honest, i have never used a different type other than the white flour to bake, but this sunflower dark flour made the bread super moist. i must say ( despite my addiction to breads) but kneading the dough is a stress relief method for me, just give it a try and you’ll be happy with result coz the more you knead the dough the more the gluten develops and the better your bread will turn after baking. recipe Ingredients: 3 cups sunflower seed flour 1 cup white bread flour 2 Tbsp. dry active yeast ¼ full fat milk ¼ cup vegetable oil 1 Tbsps.…
