Moroccan Rfissa is a type of porridge. It is also very popular in Morocco and is one of the most consumed dishes, as it is a Moroccan folklore that bears the title of a distinctive civilization.

In addition to all this, it has many benefits, as its healthy components provide the body with energy and gain immunity against cold diseases, for example. It also contains a large amount of mineral salts, as it is considered a companion for women in the postpartum period, as it helps to clean the uterus.
