Moroccan Rghaif#BreadBakers

Rghaif is a squared flatbread usually eaten in Morocco for breakfast or tea time. You can have them plain or stuffed, sweet or savory, their texture is very soft. It’s richer, but also crispy and super comforting. I have made a vegan version of this bread. This is also made with a meat, caramelized onions filling and there’s many ways to prepare this bread. Traditionally they are individually pan-fried but we can also bake them.
For The Dough
1 Cup Heaped All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons Semolina
¼ Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Oil 
For The Stuffing
2 Tablespoons Oil
1 Cup Sliced Onions
Salt to taste
2 Chopped Olives
2 Chopped Jalapenos

Prepare The Dough
Mix the flour and semolina together. Add oil and mix well, then keep adding little water at a time and knead to a stiff dough. Keep aside covered for at least 15 minutes.
In the meantime let's make the stuffing
In a pan heat oil, add the onions with add a pinch of salt and sauté until light golden brown/caramelized. 
Transfer the onions in bowl add olives, jalapenos and mix well.
Divide the dough into 4 parts and roll each into a round circle about ¼ inch thick. 
Place the filling in the center and now fold it like an envelope to make a square. Lightly roll it to make it slightly thin and to even out the stuffing.
Fold it into a square parcel.
Roll this square rghaif to flatten it a little.
Heat a skillet with oil and fry these on low flame until golden on both sides. 
Serve hot with pickle.
