If anybody has made this and has pictures of it (or wants to make it and take pictures) I'd appreciate it. I have looked all over the web and can't find any decent pictures of this dish.

thanks

IT's supposed to be like a hummus stuffed bread "type" thing... I've just had no luck... Thanks a bunch for trying though :)

I may have to make it at home and take pictures of it....

I've got a recipe for hummus in the cookbook but don't have it at my work computer. i'll have to see if i have it online or not. if not, i'm sure some of the girls here have it. I don't remember if it is in the sultans kitchen thread or not.

That does look yummy. What origin is it?

There is several recipes and methods of making Kalentika and this is a version of it that Henia posted in Sultan's kitchen way back in 2007. It is a culinary specialty of Oran, Algeria

Meriem (F)

Kalentika (Unlike the Calentica chickpea pie of Tanger and Gibralter)

I had this in Oran and it was fab!!!

1 cup warm water (100 degrees)

1 package dry yeast

1 tablespoon sugar

3 cups flour (AP or fine semolina or a combination of both)

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon of smen or butter

extra flour for dusting

Method:

1. Place the water in a large mixing bowl, add sugar and stir untill it has dissolved.

2. Add the yeast, let sit for about 5-10 minutes. A creamy foam should appear on the surface of the water.

3. Add the flour, salt, olive oil and smen to the proofed yeast. Begin incorporating the ingredients by stirring. When the mixture comes together in a pliable mass place the dough on a lightly floured surface to begin kneading.

4. Form the dough into a flattened ball. Fold the edge opposite of you in half towards your body. Knead the dough with the bottom of your palms away from your away.

5. Turn the dough in quarters, repeat the fold and knead (dust the work surface with flour as necessary) untill the dough is smooth. This will take approximately 15-20 minutes.

6. Form the dough into a ball, place into a large bowl and coat lightly with oil. Cover with plastic, let rest untill double in bulk. This will take about 1 hour at 75-80 degrees. I wouldn't get a barometer to measure temperatures though. Depending on the weather place the dough in a warmer or cooler place in the kitchen.

7. Punch the dough down.

Hummus stuffing for Kalentika

Ingredients:

1. 1/2 cups cooked chicke peas.

2. 1 clove of garlic, finely minced

3. 1/2 tablespoon of ground cumin

4. Salt and Pepper to taste

5. 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil

Method:

1. Gently mash the chick peas with a fork, add the remaining ingredients, mix well and adjust seasoning to taste.

2. Divide dough into 12 balls.

3. Roll out the balls into 1/4" thick circles.

4. Evenly spread 2 tablespoons of the hummus on 6 six of the disks. Leave 1/2" along the edge clean.

5. Place the remaining disks on top of the disks that have been spread with hummus and gently seal the edges with your fingers.

6. Cook the stuffed dough in a non-stick skillet on medium heat untill golden brown.

There is an alternative method for Kalentica. The seasoned chickpeas are incorporated into the dough before it is let to rise. Traditionally it would have been cooked in a skillet, but nowadays alot of Algerians have access to ovens. Brush a 14" cakepan with olive oil and form the dough inside. Brush the top with olive oil, bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes, depending on your oven
