Ingredients to make Lamb and cheese Manakeesh

  • For the manakeesh dough :

  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon active dried or instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Pinch of sugar
  • For the lamb mince :

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium tomato , finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • For the toppings :
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Tangier spice blend
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese

How to make Lamb and cheese Manakeesh

  1. To make the dough : heat the water until lukewarm . Add the sugar and yeast and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes
  2. Once the yeast is frothy, you can continue. If it doesn't turn frothy , discard and start over.
  3. Add the flour, oil and salt to the yeast mixture
  4. Mix by hand until it comes together into a rough dough. If it's too wet , add more flour . If too dry, add more water by the tablespoon
  5. Knead for 5 minutes or so until smooth and not sticky. Place in a greased bowl , cover and let rest in a warm place for an hour or until doubled
  6. As the dough rests, you can prepare the minced meat. In a frying pan , saute the onion until golden brown. Add tomato and cook until oil separates. Add the coriander , mince , salt and turmeric . Cook for few minutes until done.
  7. Once the dough has doubled , punch out the air . Preheat the oven to 180 c or 350 F.
  8. Divide the dough into 4 portions and roll each into a circle of about 5 inches . Place the circles on a baking sheet .
  9. Mix together the olive oil and Tangier spice blend. Apply over all the bases leaving a thin edge of about an inch free.
  10. Apply the minced meat filling over the Tangier spice layer on all the bases.
  11. Grate the mozzarella cheese over the minced meat (about a tablespoon over each )
  12. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes . Serve hot or warm !

My Tip:

You can even skip the meat filling entirely and use just the tangier layer with cheese!
