1. We are going to start by making the Tfaya, which is the caramelized onions – since the onions take a bit of time to cook.
2. First, soak the raisins in hot water. We’ll use them later.
3. Now we are going to prepare 2 pounds onions.
4. When you peel the onions, make sure to soak them in a bowl of water. This is a very important step, because cutting so many onions will definitely make you cry! Soaking the onions in water is a trick to help with that!
5. Cut the onions in half and thinly slice them. To be efficient, just place the onion slices directly into your cooking pot.
6. Add 2 tablespoons of butter, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon ginger powder, 1 teaspoon turmeric powder, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon. Pour ¼ cup of water.
7. Mix all the ingredients. Cover your cooking pot and cook the onions on medium-low heat for 45 minutes. Don’t forget to stir from time to time!
8. If the onions have been cooking for 45 minutes, then they are ready for the next step.
9. Add the raisins that you have drained from water, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of orange blossom water.
10. Mix well, half-cover the pot, and continue cooking the onions on medium-low heat until they are completely caramelized, which take around 20 minutes. Make sure to stir from time to time.
11. The onions and raisins will eventually get a rich brown color and will be soaking in a thick syrup. They will basically look like this… oh yum, make sure you don’t eat them before serving the couscous!
12. Serve hot.
