Babouches or blighate is dessert that is popular in Morocco and Algeria.It usually made to celebrate religious and social events like Ramadan , Eid, weddings,graduations..etc. The word Babouches actually means slippers! and it was used because these little crunchy sesame bites look like moroccan slippers. That being said, please don’t let the name put you off, these babouches are truly irresistible. As you may already know, I rarely fry anything but my Algerian friend always raves about these babouches and I have tried them on a number of occasions and I know they are truly worth the praise but up until now, I have never worked up the courage to make them at home because having a plate full of these on my kitchen counter was a temptation I did not want to face lol!
