  • Droul
  • Chamia
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Croissants
  • Small cakes from the Patisserie

And they drink different things too:
  • Coffee (any of the many varieties - cappucin, cappuccino, cafe creme, etc)
  • Milk

Once a week I prepare a nice big American style breakfast - scrambled eggs, pancakes (my husband LOVES pancakes! - but not Tunisian pancakes, only American pancakes LOL), and hash browns. YUMMY!! :)

what is droul and chamia????
Chamia is a sweet mixture of tahina and sugar. There are several varieties of chamia: normal, with the dry fruits (almonds - pistachios), with almonds, with chocolate, etc. Here is a picture:

Droul is like a porridge - kinda. It is a powder that you cook with milk and/or water (I use a little of both), and sugar. You cook it on the stove over low heat constantly stirring it. It starts of really liquidy, and after the mixture boils for about a minute or two it thickens up.

Personally I find this very dry to eat alone although my daughter likes it this way and my husband aways adds this to the porridge below often called halwa chamia

This is definately an accquired taste, something I have yet to achieve. It is green and to me reminds me of gruel, but it is very popular in the town my husband is from.
