Do you know Qer9 Moqla?!

Once upon a time very long ago, we gathered in the tent in front of the dowwa in the then freezing Q8y winter… one of my aunts would bring a little pan (moqla)… mix some eggs milk saffron cardamom & flour with sugar, then pour the mix into the pan and over the coal she would make us something that tastes like a cross between a pancake and a qers 3qaili…. and it was so SO good and warm and sweet and fulfilling… the ultimate quick winter quick comfort food!

I remember my mother calling it qers moqla… I remember my mother trying to recreate it later on and making a fairly good version but not quite the same… so i cannot rely on my mothers recipe. I tried to google the recipe online but guess what? Apparently no one knows much about qer9 moqla or makes it!!! Let alone have a picture of it…

Have you heard or had qer9 moqla before?! Now if you did can you please get me the recipe?! I just can’t stop thinking about it…

    I think what you’re referring to is what we call ger9 m7ala in Bahrain. It looks like a crepe and tastes like ger9 3gaili. Some ppl serve it with sprinkled icing sugar on top and others mix the sugar with the batter recipe. My mom makes the best.. yummy;)
    Here’s a link to ger9 m7ala recipe that i found online if this is what you’re looking for (except that we usually add saffron and rose water to the batter) 🙂

    القرص مقله اكلة كويتيه قديمه جداوتقريبا انقرضت
    يسوونها على المقله
    وكانت تصنع لاخذها بالرحلات الطويله كالحج لانها تحتفض بخواصها مده طويله مثل بيض القطا وغيرها من الحلويات
    اما سبب انقراضها فهي تحتاج الى صبر بالصنع ونار هادية
    شفت خالتي الله يرحمها سوتها لنا مرة
    كانت بفنجان القهوة
    لكل بيضه فنجان طحين وفنجان سكر
    وهيل وزعفران مطحون منقوع بقليل من ماي الورد

    يضرب البيض جيدا بالسكر والهيل والزعفران
    ويضاف الطحين تدريجي
    وتصب بمقله متوسطه مدهونه بالسمن وتقلى على نار هاديه الى ان
    تجمد العجينه وتتحمر بالاسفل ثم تقطع كروس وتقلب وتكمل تحميرها على النار الهادئه

    نار الدوة الخافت مثالي لعملها ويعطيها نكهه سموكن
    ذكرتني فيها

    لا تحاتي اخوي الاكلة كويتية ميه بالميه
    وسأل شايبنا والحجية

    انا الي اتذكرة ان مافيها حليب
    والفنجان فنجان قهوة القديم
    وكان طعمها عجيب عجيب
    شكلي حتى انا بجرب اسويها بعد
    وانشاءالله بسال امي الله يطول بعمرها عنها وردلكم خبر

    الخلطه البحرينيه اقرب للبانكيك
