Rghaif is a type of Moroccan fried dough - it typically has just a tiny bit of leavening - which might be folded various ways before it hits the frying pan or oil. Msemen, shown here, is the square-shaped version and the easiest to try making. How to Make Msemen shows how to fold the dough, flatten it, and then fry it.

Msemen are very tasty either right off the griddle or dipped in a hot syrup made from a mixture of butter and honey. You can also spread them with soft cheese or jam, or even fry them in hot chili oil. Serve them for breakfast or tea time with Moroccan Mint Tea.

Msemen might also be stuffed with various fillings before they're folded. Try the Onion Msemen Recipe or the Kefta Msemen Recipe.
