Guvec/Tajin (Lamb and Veggie Casserole)

Monday, August 30, 2010

One of my morrocon friend Rachid give me a gift called Tajin . Actually in Morocco it is the traditional way of cooking, they cook meats, chicken,fish etc. in that pots. The traditional tagine pot is formed entirely of a heavy clay, which is sometimes painted or glazed.
in Turkey we call this type of foods "guvec", it is a kinda similar . And the taste is i think similar.

I served it in the tajin which is given by my friend. If you cant find this much attractive plate to serve, you can serve with your regular plates , the taste is same and everybody will love it:)

I cooked rice with this, they are good friends i believe..
