Somali Doughnuts (Kac Kac) Beignets Somalis الدونت الصومالي

Somali Doughnuts (Kac Kac) Beignets Somalis  الدونت الصومالي

 

Long before we were introduced to the doughnuts we had outside Somalia, we were familiar with kac kac. We loved these tasty snacks that were sold in traditional Somali restaurants (maqaayo Soomaali) in Mogadishu. They were great for a quick breakfast when served alongside a cup of Somali tea with milk (shaah caddeeys). In those restaurants, they would prepare a big pile of kac kac early in the morning and by noon they would vanish.

In addition to kac kac, for breakfast, these restaurants served anjero, qamdi, bur saliid, mashmash, sambuus (samosas), beer & basal (liver & onions), suqaar, and kabaab (meatballs). All were freshly prepared on the premises except for the anjero and mashmash, which were delivered to them very early in the morning. 

By social convention, those eateries catered to men only and were off-limits to women. However, women could buy for take-out and that they did. Luckily, that social convention did not hold in the diaspora where more and more Somali women frequent Somali eateries.

Kac kac were also prepared in some homes but they were usually made for sale. Preparing sweets and selling them provided a source of income to those who were in possession of family recipes that were passed down through generations. It was a lifeline for some families, thereby the reluctance to share those treasured recipes which were regarded as closely guarded secrets. Nowadays, some are still reluctant to share recipes in the hopes of one day starting a restaurant.

 

Longtemps avant que nous goûtions aux donuts en dehors de la Somalie, nous étions habitués aux kac kac. Nous adorions ces snacks goûteux qui étaient vendus dans les restaurants Somalis traditionnels (maqaayo Soomaali) à Mogadishu. Servis avec une tasse de thé au lait (shaah caddeeys), ils étaient très bien pour un petit-déjeuner rapide. Ces restaurants préparaient une grosse pile de kac kac tôt le matin et à midi ils étaient partis.

En plus du kac kac, pour le petit-déjeuner, ces restaurants servaient de l’anjero, qamdi, bur saliid, mashmash, sambuus (samosas), beer & basal (foie aux oignons), suqaar, et kabaab (boulettes de viande). Tous ces plats étaient préparés sur place sauf l’anjero et le mashmash, qui étaient livrés très tôt le matin.

Les conventions sociales voulaient que ces restaurants servent uniquement les hommes et étaient interdits aux femmes. Toutefois, les femmes pouvaient acheter à emporter et c’est ce qu’elles faisaient. Heureusement, ces conventions sociales n’ont pas tenu dans la diaspora où de plus en plus les femmes Somali fréquentent les restaurants Somali.

Les Kac kac étaient aussi préparés dans certaines maisons mais ils étaient destinés à la vente. Préparer les friandises et les vendre était une source de revenus pour ceux qui étaient en possession de recettes de famille qui se transmettaient de génération en génération. C’était un moyen de survie pour ces familles, d’où leur réticence à partager ces précieuses recettes qui avaient le statut de secrets bien gardés. De nos jours, certains sont toujours réticents à partager leurs recettes dans l’espoir d’un jour ouvrir un restaurant.

    • A&L
      October 30, 2012 | 2:33 pm

      Different types of olive oil have different smoke points, so use one that has a higher smoke point. If you don’t mind the taste difference, then use it. We have fried potatoes using olive oil and they were delicious. However, we don’t like the taste of sweets fried in olive oil.

    Can you please make a correction?
    The first sentence of the fourth paragraph :
    “Kac kac were also prepared in some homes but they were usually made for sale.” is missing some words :-o

    It should be “Les Kac kac étaient aussi préparés dans certaines maisons mais ils étaient destinés à la vente.”

    I was wondering if I could replace the unsalted butter with melted margarine since I am currently unable to get butter.
    Also any good tips for making good dough. I was also wondering about my
    canjeelo turning out without that beautiful colouring and little holes
    (I used recipe C since I had the ingredients for that recipe and left it to ferment for most of the day though I do live in a very cold climate)

    • A&L
      February 5, 2013 | 8:59 pm

      You could replace the butter with margarine if you cannot find butter. You will need to activate the yeast and check if it still good. Mix the yeast with 1/4 cup lukewarm water and 1/2 tsp sugar. Leave it for 10 minutes. If bubbles form and the mixture triples then you can use it to mix the Canjeero. You will need to keep the batter in a warm place to ferment. Thank you.
