Somali Fried Biscuits

Many confuse these biscuits with kac kac (Somali doughnuts). Buskud goos goos or buskud jar jar is the traditional Somali biscuit that is served during Eid. Kac kac spoil quickly because they contain eggs, but buskud goos goos can be stored for a long time. To make them last longer, they are fried until they harden. Together with oodkac or muqmad (jerky-style beef cubes), they were journey-food (sahay) for Somali nomads and travellers.

As we prepared these biscuits, my mother related to us how these were, and still are, her favourite biscuits. She told us, that growing up, they were the only biscuits she was familiar with. My grandmother, Isniino Cigaal, made some of the best buskud goos goos and she used to serve them, together with oodkac, to guests on Eid mornings.

In our home, in Somalia, these biscuits were known as buskudka Ololaha (the Literacy Campaign biscuits) and that is because my mother used to prepare them and hand-deliver them to each one of us, when we were far from home taking part in a literacy campaign in the rural areas. I remember the afternoon that I was sitting under a tree in the hinterland of Dhuusamreeb, teaching nomads how to read and write. Out of nowhere, a Land Rover appeared and I saw my mother for the first time in five months. It was at the height of a severe drought and there was a great deal of suffering going on at the time. There was my mother, with two very large tins (kalloorado). The first had oodkac and dates, while the second was filled with buskud goos goos. You can imagine the joy of those present. I will never forget that place, that day, that moment. Mother, love you forever.

Biscuits Frits Somalis

www.xawaash.com

Beaucoup confondent ces biscuits avec les kac kac (beignets Somalis). Buskud goos goos ou buskud jar jar est le biscuit Somali traditionnel servi pendant l’Eid. Les Kac kac s’abîment rapidement parce qu’ils contiennent des oeufs, mais les buskud goos goos peuvent être conservés longtemps. Pour les faire durer, ils sont frits jusqu’à ce qu’ils durcissent. Avec oodkac ou muqmad (cubes de boeuf façon viande séchée), ils faisaient partie de la nourriture de voyage (sahay) des nomades Somalis et des voyageurs.

Alors que nous préparions ces biscuits, ma mère nous raconta qu’ils étaient, et sont toujours, ses biscuits favoris. Elle nous raconta, que enfant, ils étaient les seuls biscuits qu’elle connaissait. Ma grand mère, Isniino Cigaal, faisait les meilleurs buskud goos goos et elle les servait à ses invités les matins d’Eid, accompagnés de oodkac.

A la maison, en Somalie, ces biscuits étaient connus sous le nom de buskudka Ololaha (les biscuits de la Campagne d’Alphabétisation) parce que ma mère nous les préparait et nous les amenait à chacun, quand nous étions loin de la maison pour participer à la campagne d’alphabétisation des zones rurales. Je me rappelle qu’un après-midi alors que j’étais assis sous un arbre dans l’arrière pays de Dhuusamreeb, enseignant aux nomades la lecture et l’écriture. Sortie de nulle part, une Land Rover apparut et j’aperçus ma mère pour la première fois depuis cinq mois. Nous étions au pic d’une sécheresse sévère et nous souffrions beaucoup à ce moment là. Ma mère se tenait là avec deux grosses boites (kalloorado). La première contenait de l’oodkac et des dattes, la seconde était remplie de buskud goos goos. Vous pouvez imaginer le bonheur de recevoir ces cadeaux. Je n’oublierai jamais l’endroit, le jour, le moment. Mère, je t’aime pour toujours.

Waxaan u qoray oon siiyey habka loo sameeyo, lakiin way i aamini waayeen, waxay dhaheen buskudkaan sidaan u mac in dhib yaraantaan lagu sameyn karo ma dhici karto. Markaasaa waxaan tusiyey blogkiina si ay indhahooda ugu arkaan. Waxay aad ugu riyaaqeen sida fudud wax aad u micneysaan oo xataa qofka dhagaha la’a iyo kan af Soomaaliga aan garaneyn ama in qof kasta ay ka baran karaan cunto karinta. Axsantu sida fiican oo aad wax noogu micneysan, xoogiina ama qarashka idinka galana, ajirkeeda iyo xasanad Ilahey ha idinkuugu bedelo, Ameen.

    You are really doing a great job. Its so amazing to know that this world is so small and round too…you know all around the world people make the same thing with a different name. In India people make it both varieties, salty and sweet with exactly the same ingredients. And in other parts of Asia too.
