Moroccan Sellou


A Moroccan friend of mine, from Casablanca, often offrs me this homemade dessert, prepared by herself; but also she taught me the recipe, which I post to you, stating that the photos represent her sellou, not mine! It’s a sweet typical of the Ramdam month, as it is highly digestible and full of energy, has no shape and is “sandy” to the palate, with a granular texture. I love it very much (but not too much at once!)

500 gr of toasted almonds, coarsely chopped
500 gr toasted flour
500 gr of toasted sesame seeds
a handful of fennel seeds, toasted and finely chopped
nutmeg to taste
cinnamon to taste
sugar to taste
olive oil to taste
a pinch salt

After toasting flour, almonds, fennel seeds and sesame, and chopping almonds and fennel seeds, mix them all; prepare a batter made of sugar and olive oil, and then add all ingredients gradually, tasting from time to time, to regulate spices and salt to your taste. Enjoy!
