It is common here. The yolk is not raw - it is cooked, but not fully and that is why it is still runny/liquidy.

If you have young children, the mothers here will give them the egg like this because they can choke on the yolk if it is fully cooked since it is dry and sticks to their mouths.

:rolleyes:i was wondering what Tunisians eat for breakfast at home?we usually eat bread with butter and honey with milk or coffee depend on taste,some eat eggs boiled ,others like me eat nothing :D
so which is your favourite breakfast?:)
traditional families eat for example "dro3" or "bcissa" but modern families eat something like cake, butter, marmalade

bcisssa, yay! a little bit sugar with it as well, lovely indeed. Chamia is also pretty famous I think and comes along with all kind of different tastes (vanille, strawberry etc).
sometimes we also eat olive oil, honey (asal) in the middle of it with small bread (thinner then pancakes). thats lovely as well if you love sweet stuff.
or we start off with chakchouka, a little, or eggs.

dont forget that especially in summer time most will eat warm twice a day, midday and evening. so often you eat something in the morning to "help u get along" till 1 or 2 o'clock when you will have your real meal.

it probably depends on "traditional families" and modern ones as well, and ofcourse class/income background.

chinese

then it's a good idea. i'm looking 4 a chinese chef :cool: :cool: think Tunisians would like chinese? I know Nour loves it :D
I do a pretty mean Chinese, I love it too. I can make egg fu yong and General Tso chicken and pretty good spring rolls. I also know how to make char siu (which I think would work pretty well with beef) Usually I end up getting take out, because I like to have some of everything! :D Great, now I'm hungry too!

Hi Roulla,

We must share breakfast LoL, I don't drink coffee, I'm a Tea drinker, but other than that we have the same breakfast habits LoL

I still think "tourists" was the right answer LoL:D

Droul(pronounced Draaw) is corn based hot cooked cereal made with milk and honey. Chamia is the Magrebian version of Turkish Halvah sweet sesame Spread usually with almonds or pistachio.

And what's that bitter green powdered stuff made of ground wheat and olive oil?Will have to ask 'his royal cave-ness'-he loves it for breakfast!
