About Moroccan Vegetable Tagine Recipe

This is a signature dish of Morocco which is prepared in a special pan called the Tagine. Healthy and nutritious, it is also hassle free, as you just need to arrange all the veggies in the tagine, drizzle some masalas mixed with olive oil and cook, covered, on a low flame. It is that simple. No stirring required. The veggies are cooked in steam and it can be relished with some plain steamed rice or paratha/ naan/chapati for the Indian palate. But traditionally it is relished with some couscous. You can go ahead and add any veggies available and you will have a sumptuous and a delicious treat in front of you.
