Of Berber origin, tagine is now part of Moroccan cuisine. Many recipes for tagines are indeed considered national dishes in Morocco. Among them, it is impossible to forget the tagine with prunes and almonds. This sweet-savory tagine is on every restaurant’s menu in the country and Moroccans like to serve it during Ramadan.
Cooked and smothered in the famous dish for tagine, the prune and almond tagine is of course composed of prunes, blanched and fried almonds, but also onions, garlic, cinnamon, ras el hanout, sesame seeds, sugar, olive oil, salt, pepper and saffron. Obviously we add meat: chicken, lamb or veal.
The prunes and almonds tagine is eaten without accompaniment or with Moroccan bread or semolina, and why not with some mint tea followed by a few desserts.
A little advice from Hertz Morocco : rent a luxury car to comfortably drive across Morocco and to go to restaurants where you will be able to order a prune and almond tagine.
