Meloui or Msemen are Moroccan pancakes which are often eaten during breakfast or lunch. It is also eaten almost every day during the Ramadan. It is quite a time consuming activity so when making this food, one usually makes a lot! Every region in Morocco had it’s own recipe. Some use semolina, some don’t. Some add lots of yeast, some less. Usually the Meloui is left to set a bit longer so it rises and is a bit thicker.
Meloui are traditionally round-shaped pan-fried dough. They can be eaten plain, savory ( filling with meat/fish/vegetable ) or sweet ( with honey or jam ).
Msemen are traditionally square- shaped layered pan-fried dough. They can be eaten plain, savory ( filling with meat ) or sweet ( with honey or jam ).
