The tagine of the day : chicken and vegetables
The tagine is a classic dish, cooked almost every day in Morocco. Necessarily, there are lots of varieties of tajine and beyond those to meat, fish or vegetarian, there are also tagines holidays (we cook to receive, for a special occasion, etc) and the tagines of the day. Here, everything is played on the presentation but also on the selected ingredients : the tajin festival will consist of fine pieces of meat, spices, honey or dried fruits while the tagine everyday will consist of pieces of meat more “classic” and simple vegetables from her garden or from the market, cut a little as you want. We spend a lot of time on the tagine feasts, then we cook almost mechanically to the tagine of daily life, the lady of the house throws it while doing something else, it does not require special attention.
But it is no less delicious, and at home, it is done regularly these tajines. The kids love them and don chipotent not to eat the vegetables that compose them.
