Couscous with vegetable stew

Couscous with vegetable stew

Continuing on the journey to Algeria, we checked out a visual geography series book on Algeria by Francesca Davis DiPiazza. I read part of it with kids and met with questions about sand dunes and desert fox, Fennec 🙂 Did you know that this country has been the battleground for centuries by many empires? Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Byzantines, Ottomans and French have invaded this country. Prayer points Arab brought Islam to the country in 7th century A.D.It continues to be religion of the land despite of many invasions and change in wind over the centuries. Algerians continue to debate the role religion should play in the democracy.Pray for the clarity in legislation to lead. Many Berbers are gravitated towards Christianity more out of disdain towards Islam then to love for Christ. May their eyes be opened.Pray for the reconciliation efforts.(operation world)   I also learnt that Couscous, not rice, is staple of Algerians. So we had to try it.A very specific, vessel couscousiere,is used to make couscous by Algerians .It is fair...

Algerian Fruit Medley (Chalda Fakya)

Algerian Fruit Medley (Chalda Fakya)

We are in the second ‘A’ country and it is: Algeria. Yay!! This country has been in mind lately.Thanks to Noel Piper talking about Lilias Trotter in her book “Faithful Women and their Extraordinary God.” As I continue to research on Algeria, one people group which I never knew until know is sticking out to me: Berbers of Algeria. ‘Berbers’, this name was given by early Romans who came to the country centuries ago, to the native Algerians of that time. Berbers have been historically nomads and preferred themselves to be called “Imazighen” (Free people).Islam is the religion of the land however Christianity had blossomed here centuries ago. Berbers have identified themselves with Islam, old rooted tradition as well as Christianity over the time. Many Kabyle Berbers are seeking Christ today. Pray that Christ will reveal Himself to Kabyle Berbers. Pray that Bible will be accessible to them in their language. Pray those evangelists who are reaching to this people group will be strengthening. As i was looking for...

Sheer Pira

Sheer Pira

Last week i found out that Muslims around the world celebrated the Eid -ul-Zuha.I grew up in Hindu-Muslim community in India.Schools are out on this day there.I had the opportunity to witness the festivity growing up. My prayer through this : May the people worship one true god,The Lord. ‘Bakreed’ is the term that I am familiar with.Literally means “Bakra Eid” .”Bakra” meaning goat.On this day, Muslim faithful sacrifice the animal.One third of the meat is kept for the family, one third is distributed among family and friends and one third is given to the poor. So I decided to close out our Afghanistan tour on sweet note.Though “Firni” (thick milk pudding)is the most popular dessert of Afghanistan,I chose a candy like dessert  called “Sheer Pira”. Sheer Pira is very sweet cardmom scented candy like milk dessert, hard and chewy at the same time. Traditionally it is made with whole cream milk powder.All I could find was non-fat milk powder in my grocery store, so that’s what i used....

Sitting in a cozy corner of my home as i enjoy the sound of rain and cool morning,i go over the list of prayer and challenges for Afghanistan from Operation World.I look into the pictures and couldn’t help but  wonder how does rain feel like there?Is it cozy or uncomfortable? People of Afghanistan are facing  many challenges from recovery to rebuilding .To the very least you and i can do is to pray for the wisdom and courage among many other things for them.May we intercede for them. {Insert the name of the country,as you pray this prayer} Now this recipe which i am going to share with you, i made it as a side dish to go with Kitchadi,a comfort food,when i had sore throat couple days back. It is a layered dish of eggplant and bell pepper,topped with tomatoes and served with the spoonful drizzle of yogurt sauce. Eggplants or bell peppers can be fried or baked or grilled.I simply sauted it one after another.If you are...
