Please identify the dishes[edit]

Morocco seems to have a rich culinary tradition, but I don't know these randomly put names are really called as such. So if anyone knowledgeable of Moroccan cuisine or of Moroccan origin name their "Moroccan name" or common English name for the dishes, that would be great help to expand the article. Thanks.--Caspian blue 23:01, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Caspian blue. I still have to verify the list at the main article. It seems that there are many inaccuracies. -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 05:44, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for the input. But I'm still wondering the dish names such as 59. Moroccan salad is just named "Moroccan salad"? (there are other types of salad dishes in Moroccan cuisine. Moroccans cook lambs for many dishes, so original names or commonly used names would be good for beginners.--Caspian blue 05:49, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
I've just removed it since that is more a Spanish salad than a Moroccan one. What happens is that due to the historical and geographical proximities many Moroccan and Spanish dishes are mutually consumed. The salad is Spanish and consumed --not heavily-- in some parts of northern Morocco. -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 06:12, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
That is the salad I am talking about (check the second one here). -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 06:16, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

I'd say Harissa is more a Tunisian tradition. It is not so popular as in the sense of "popular". -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 08:22, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

-_-;; Too complicated..I'll remove the entry from the article.--Caspian blue 08:27, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Djej emshmel[edit]

Moroccan food-Chicken tagine with preserved lemons and olives-01.jpgMoroccan Feast Chicken and Olives.jpg Are these chicken dishes Djej emshmel?[1][2] Those dishes seem to be the dish according to the recipes including lemon and olive.--Caspian blue 08:54, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

The first image is of Djej Mchermel though the spelling (as in the es-wiki) is incorrect. It should be called Djej Mcahrmel. Mcharmel comes from charmoula. The second image is just a Chicken Tajine with vegetables. -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 10:48, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
Is by any chance Djej Mcahrmel an alternative spelling of Djej emshmel? Because according to this source, Djej emshmel is a popular Moroccan chicken tagine also known as djej m'chemel, djej emshemel or djej emsharmel. --Caspian blue 11:33, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
I am sure the spelling of the source is incorrect but —unfortunately here— we have to abide by the policies and follow the sources in order to avoid original research :) -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 11:54, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
Since you say the spelling from the source is incorrect, I think we can use other language sources; Arabic, French, Spanish. I can't find any English source by searching "Djej Mcahrmel". --Caspian blue 12:02, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
I am very sorry, it's mcharmel not mcahrmel. Here it goes. Djej can be spelled Djaj as well so you better search for mcharmel. -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 12:11, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Is Briouat same as Bourekas/Burek?[edit]

I think the shape, recipe and ingredients of briouat look same as Bourekas/Burek to me. Isn't a Moroccan name for the dish that has a same root or another dish?--Caspian blue 21:15, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

I Don't think that you can find a Bourekas in Morocco. Briouat is a bit different....


Baghrir and rghayif are not the same. This is baghrir and this is rghayif. As you can see they differ quite a bit... Elostirion (talk) 17:33, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
