For the dough:
Mix flour with salt, dig a well and add the other ingredients. Knead the dough, let stand in warm place, after coated with olive oil
Peel carrots, cut into chunks and boil until perfectly cooked. Mash with a fork or pass them through a vegetable mill.
Add to the puree, the grated onion, salt, tabil and caraway, 1 tbls of harissa and 1/3 tbsp of Harouss, and mix with three tablespoons of olive oil. Set aside.
Take small balls of dough, depending on the size you want your flat cakes to be and spread thinly with the help of a little oil (not flour). Fill a cake, and cover with another dough disc. Repeat until all the batter is used.
Cook the patties 5 minutes per side in a pan without adding fat! You can enjoy these flat cakes hot or cold as a starter or dish with a salad!
Sometimes I make small portions for appetisers.
