It is meticulously prepared once a year, not only to celebrate the Amazigh New Year, known as “Id Ennayer,” but also to invoke abundant blessings for a prosperous agricultural season.This dish, in the form of a thick porridge, requires a combination of various starchy components such as corn, barley, wheat, lentils, fava beans, and more. It is enriched with dried mutton shanks, aromatic spices, olive oil, and water. The cooking process is a labor of time and care, as it takes several hours of slow simmering over a gentle flame.
