Maaqouda, which can be translated to “bound” or “thick”, is a potato fritter which is often prepared plain, but can also be stuffed with tuna, ground meat or even cheese.

The recipe for this delicious fritter is quite simple. The greatest difficulty lies in the fact that the preparation has to be perfect to prevent it from crumbling during frying, and these steps have to be followed:
– Cool the potato purée
– The potato purée should also be somewhat dry. For that, dry the potatoes in the pan after draining and mashing them, or bake them instead of boiling them. Also, it is better to mash them with a fork rather than with a blender
– Wait until the oil is very hot (350 F / 175˚C) before starting to fry

 2 lbs potatoes
 2 eggs , beaten
 4 tbsp breadcrumbs
 3 tbsp finely chopped parsley
 ½ tsp turmeric
 ½ tsp cumin
 Flour (for coating)
 Salt
 Pepper
 Oil for frying
