Moroccan Tajine

The Moroccan Tajine: Everything You Need to Know to Enjoy It
This blog, in which we have previously discussed themes such as Berber Pizza, Ras el Hanout, and Chebakia, will soon have a new post devoted to the world of food and drink. It is now time to move on to the Moroccan tajine, which is often regarded as the meal that is served the most frequently in Moroccan restaurants. In this section, we will explain what it is, what it consists of, and other ideas that will help you get the most out of it while you are on your vacation.

What exactly is a Moroccan Tajine?

The meal known as Moroccan tajine (also spelt tajine or tajine) gets its name from the actual cooking vessel used to prepare it. Or, alternatively, from the vessel in which it is prepared and served, which is a tiny casserole made of earthenware and topped with a cover in the form of a conical chimney.


This one-of-a-kind appliance is suitable for the preparation of a virtually infinite variety of meals. All of the recipes have one thing in common: they need to be cooked over a low heat, first as a stir-fry in the casserole dish, and then, after adding the seasoned water, as a slow-cooked stew. This cooking method is similar to that used for a great number of other Moroccan foods.


What exactly is the function of the lid with the conical shape? The answer is that it does two tasks at once: on the one hand, it ensures that the meal does not get dry and on the other hand, it keeps the food at the desired temperature. This is accomplished in the latter scenario not only because it stops them from leaking moisture, but also because the moisture condenses on the inner walls of the lid and drips back into the pan where it was originally contained.

Moroccan tajine is a dish that lends itself very well to the creation of vegetarian dishes, as is evident from the method in which it is traditionally cooked. Pulses (particularly chickpeas), nuts (especially almonds), vegetables (tomatoes, courgettes, carrots, etc.), fruit (dates, apples), and of course, a healthy dose of spices and herbs are the most prevalent components.


As you can see, the Moroccan tajine is the whole of the world. Because of this, the best thing you can do when travelling is try a number of different things so that you can evaluate and compare them. If you would want our assistance in choosing a restaurant, please let us know.
