Msemen Rghaif

In my opinion "mesmen" would be the alleged baby of a crepe and a mille-feuille. It is thin, soft and fluffy like a crepe but it's also crispy and layer-y like a mille-feuille (minus the icing the custard, of course).

Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
In a large bowl, mix All-Purpose Flour (1 cup), Salt (as needed) and Semolina Flour (1 cup) and 2 tablespoons of Vegetable Oil (2 Tbsp) to form a dough. If the mixture is too dry and you can't form a dough, add a couple tablespoons of Water (1/2 cup) bit by bit. Make sure you don't add too much water to the dough because it will make your dough very sticky and you won't be able to knead it.
step 2
When your dough is nicely done, lightly flour a worktop and knead for 15 minutes until light and soft.
step 3
Once your dough is ready, divide the dough in small balls, place on a tray, lightly drizzle with some Vegetable Oil (2 Tbsp) and cover with cling film for 40 minutes in a warm place.

step 5
Using your hands, flatten the dough again but this time as thin as you can to make a circle or a square without damaging the dough. You will have to be quick for this process otherwise the dough will dry out and you might damage it.
step 6
Fold each side of the dough vertically and then horizontally towards the center to make a square. Place the folded msemen on a greased surface and cover with a cloth or a cling film. Repeat the same process until you have folded all the dough balls.
