  1. Salaam aleikum...

    Oh man, did I make a fool out of myself making these yesterday hehe. I wrote down the recipie quickly, and went to make it in the kitchen. Mixed it all, and started pouring water. After uhm, 3 cups of water, I felt it was more than enough water, as I had a firm, nice dough... Yeah. Right.

    I went back to the computer, left it to rise, and when I came to start preparing the cooking after a couple of hours, i was reading the instructions.


    Well, okay, the breads were nice enough, acompanied with somali chicken and rice. I was happy enough hehe, everybody at my iftar loved it :D But it was not muuffo lol.

    I just love your blog!

  2. i have tried this one. really nice...

  3. Asalamu alaikum,
    I just made this one and it came out okay. It was more like a very thick pancake than a bread which I thought it would be more like. I had in mind that it would be like an english muffin texture. It was very good however, mashallah. Did I make it right?

  4. Wa alaikum salam

    This is more like a pancake than an English muffin. It should be very heavy. It sounds like you made it right. Just make sure you use garlic and sugar because it makes it taste really good. I have other muuffo recipes, take a look at the pics and see if the inside looks the same.

  5. Salam, wonderful blog u have here. These look like a northern nigerian meal called masa. It is usually eaten with vegetable soup. Am off to make some.

    Ma salam
