Bread is a staple component of the Algerian cuisine, most popular and best loved of which is Khobz Eddar. Literally meaning the home’s bread, referring to the fact that in most Algerian homes this bread is made at home, despite being also widely available in the markets.
This bread is had everyday for breakfast, where it is had with a variety of foods such as the famous Algerian Chakchouka, as well as their olive oil and olives and for scooping many dips and dairy curds and cheeses. Khobz is also always had with soups in Algeria and as such is a staple Ramadan table component.
The Algerians insist to make this bread at home, especially during the month of Ramadan, and consider it a tradition.“I bake my bread during Ramadan. In my household, this is a tradition that lives on.” says Radia Youcef, who generously agreed to share her Khobz Eddar recipe here with us.
