Ingredients (for 20 fricassees)
For the dough, you will need:
- 500g flour
- 1 tablespoon of oil
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of yeast
- salt
- warm water

For the stuffing, you will need:
- a potato boiled or steamed and then mashed
- 140g of canned tuna
- 50g of pitted black olives
- 2 boiled eggs
- 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise (optional)
- harissa diluted in water (optional)
- salt and pepper
- oil for frying


For the dough, start by diluting the yeast in some warm water. Then put the flour in a container, form a well and add salt, egg, oil and yeast. Mix everything slowly while adding some warm water. Knead well until you get soft and pliable dough.

Cover the dough and let it rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Make small balls of dough, the stretch them slightly on both tips and flatten them into an oblong shape. Arrange them on a plate dusted with flour and let them rise another 30 minutes. Finally, fry fricassees in a hot oil bath, brown them well and then place them on absorbent paper.

For the stuffing:
In a container, mix the mashed potatoes, tuna, hard-boiled eggs (crumbled), olives (broken into pieces), salt, pepper and mayonnaise.

Cut open the fricassee on one side, put some harissa if you prefer it spicy and then stuff it with the mixture.

Your appetizing fricassees are ready to be served!
