Potato Layered Pie

This week’s recipe is the last of the five recipes sent in by Trevor Martil. I am bringing this recipe, together with some lovely music from Senegal, to Fiesta Friday.

Today’s featured musician is Youssou N’Dour. The first clip is from an 80s concert of Le Super Etoile de Dakar.

The next clip is a music video (1994) composed by Youssou N’Dour, Neneh Cherry, Cameron McVey and Jonathan Sharp.

Hope you enjoyed the songs and do send me your feedback if you try out the recipe given below! 🙂

    • Thank you, Linda 🙂 Your chorba lsen tir recipe is a regular weekend choice for me now. Today, I substituted regular water with coconut water for the chorba simply because I needed to finish the carton of coconut water and the result was a bit sweet but still delicious.
