Khobz el Dar (Algerian Semolina Bread)
If you've never tasted Algerian bread, then you should definitely give this very easy recipe a try. Known as Khobz el Dar, it requires no kneading, no special techniques, and only basic ingredients. The result is an incredibly soft bread, slightly sweet, that tastes like brioche. Absolutely delicious.
To decorate, you can make cuts in the top of the loaf with a sharp knife before the final rise and sprinkle sesame seeds on the egg wash in a decorative pattern.
To speed up the final rising, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for about 10 minutes while preparing the dough. Once the bread is decorated and covered with a clean drying cloth, turn the oven off and place the bread inside to rise. It will take only 5 to 10 minutes for the bread to double in volume.
