Briouats - Stuffed Moroccan Pastries
Briouats (also spelled braewats) are stuffed Moroccan pastries which are usually fried. The fillings, which can be sweet or savory, are enclosed within a paper-thin dough called warqa. Outside of Morocco, spring roll wrappers or phyllo dough can be used instead. Or, you can try an easy, modern method to make your own Homemade Warqa.
Briouats are traditionally rolled into a cylinder or folded into triangles. The tutorials below will show how to do this:
