About Almond Sesame & Anise Sweet Treat (Sellou)

Called Sellou, Sfouf or Zmita in Morocco.


Toast sesame seeds in an oven on 400 for 15-20 minutes, or until they turn a golden brown. Similarly, brown the flour in a baking pan, stirring every five minutes to ensure the flour browns evenly.

Blanch almonds for thirty seconds and pinch at the butt end to remove skins. Dry completely. Fry the almonds over medium heat in a 1/2inch of oil until golden brown. Take care to simmer the almond long enough to cook the inside, but not to burn the almonds in the process.

Grind the spices into a powder. Mix with flour and salt, then sift. Grind the almonds and sesame seeds, then add to the mixture. Continue to work in ghee.
