For your next dinner party this holiday season, Moroccan cuisine is the way to go. It is sweet, spicy, and full of extra flair and flavour. We aim to bring Moroccan cuisine to the forefront and onto your dinner plate because, sadly, it is still mostly unknown and underappreciated on the Indian subcontinent. Adding this element of excitement to your dinner party will make it one to remember, since it is rich with ingredients like juicy dates, fresh veggies, and brilliant colours. Additionally, Mediterranean cuisine is renowned for its refreshing flavours and health advantages.
Read on to learn what you should serve at your Moroccan buffet, including the beverages, entrées, and even the tartlets:
1) Star anise and cinnamon cocktail
A Star Anise and Cinnamon Cocktail, which takes no more than five minutes to prepare, is the ideal beverage to greet and enchant your guests. What actually gives this beverage that kick of surprise is a delicious marriage of sweet syrupy sweetness with the flavours of lemon juice, orange peel, cinnamon, and star anise. You may make a delightful, zesty cocktail that will have your guests asking for more by adding a dash of orange liqueur (Grand Mariner).
2) Beetroot And Chickpea Hummus
The work will be worthwhile even if all it does is add a splash of pink to your Moroccan table with this Beetroot and Chickpea Hummus. This hummus is everything you need to start the celebration, set in a gorgeous fuchsia colour and served with warm pita.
A typical Mediterranean cheese prepared from sheep’s milk is called halloumi. Halloumi has a similar texture to firm mozzarella but a stronger salty flavour, making it a preferred element in Middle Eastern cuisine. This is one dish you must include on your menu, whether it is served grilled on top of a salad or as an appetiser with warm, sweet honey.
