⚽ World Cup 2018 Game 3 – Morocco vs. Iran
Moroccan and Iranian flavors belly dance in this Persian Pastilla. It’s adapted from the sweet and savory pastilla, a popular Moroccan pie, but I’ve added eggplant and substituted the traditional almond for pistachios for a Persian twist. As you take your first bite, you get the crunch from the flaky layers of the phyllo dough and pistachio, the savory flavors of the chicken and the eggplant, the fluffiness of the egg, the sweetness of the powdered sugar and all perfumed by cinnamon. Eating this will make you feel at home at Casablanca or Tehran.
