Tajin (tagine, tagine, tajine), what is this? Is it a pot or a dish? It turns out that both this and this...

A tagine is a pot with a cone-shaped lid, and a dish prepared in this pot has the same name. In the Moroccan tradition, Tajin pots are mainly made of unglazed clay and are used for long cooking of dishes on a simmer.

The recipe for this tagine - as Sabrina Ghayour writes in her book "Sirocco" - is " a real hit ", and I agree! It is a delicious, vegetarian dish full of oriental flavors that will stay in my kitchen for a long time.


1 kg of pumpkin, peeled and diced into 2 cm cubes

800 g can sliced ​​tomatoes

1 can of chickpeas, with the marinade

200 g of dried apricots

1/4 of a pickled lemon (recipe for pickled lemons ) or lemon juice (to taste)

frying oil

2 onions, diced

4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced ​​

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of ground cumin

1 teaspoon turmeric

1 - 2 teaspoons of Harissa

2 tablespoons of honey



a handful of parsley or cilantro


Pour 2 - 3 tablespoons of olive oil into the pot. Fry on hot fat, onion over medium heat until translucent, add garlic, mix and fry for a while. Add cumin, cinnamon and turmeric, mix and fry few minutes. Then add the pumpkin and mix. We sprinkle harissa on top of the pumpkin, we pour honey and canned tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, add the chickpeas with the marinade, mix and simmer (about 30-45 minutes), covered, until the pumpkin will be cooked. If necessary, add hot water.

Dried apricots pour water for 15 minutes and rinse in the strainer, then cut into strips. Add apricots and sour lemon to the tagine (or lemon juice), try it, season to taste and 15 minutes more we cook. Finally, add the chopped parsley or coriander. Enjoy your meal!
