Bread in Algeria is a key component of the Algerian diet. There is even many ancient proverbs about bread:
Khoubz el Dar (also spelled Khoubz eddar or Khobz eddar) is a great classic Algerian bread. It literally means 'bread of the home' so homemade or homestyle bread. Its recipe varys regions to region, city to city and family to family.

During we're giving a small insight into how the poor and less forunate live on a daily basis. It's a time to really count our blessings. Bread is a staple for the poor worldwide. It's government subsdiized making it an inexpensive option for filling hungry bellies. But the quality is often questionable. During Ramadan many housewives take pride in baking beautifully decorated homemade breads, so to me it seems only fitting to take a few extra moments to bake another extra loaf or loaves to give to those less fortunate.
The today I recipe today is made with extra fine semolina and flour ... and best of all it's a no-knead recipe, so you won't be spending too much time away from your prayers and Qur'an reading. This bread perfectly accompanies any soup, tadjine, stew or salad throughout the year and indispensable during the month of Ramadan.
If you can't get a hold of fine semolina where you live, you can take regular medium grained semolina sometimes called "cream of wheat' or "farina" and grind it in a kitchen machine until fine. Or alternatively, subsitute fine cornmeal for the semolina
You can make six rolls or 2 large rolls with this recipe.
