Online school is still going strong, and with the numbers of new cases, it seems that we might end up with a full online semester not just a couple of weeks. With two kids at home, attending classes from 8 to 2. I find myself falling back on quick and easy recipes. Ones that I can prepare the night before or ones that I can quickly whip up without creating too much noise during the day. Today’s chicken kofta is one of those recipes.

Bsaisit al kharob is actually an ancient Palestinian recipe. It uses staples from the pantry: whole wheat flour, carob molasses, sesame seeds and olive oil. It was one of the essentials travellers would pack for pilgrimage and long trips because it lasts for a long time without going bad and it is loaded with nutrients and health benefits. Both essential when you have to spend months on the road.⠀
