Pastilla (Arabic: بسطيلة, romanized: basṭīla, also called North African pie) is a North African cuisine meat or seafood pie made with warqa dough (ورقة), which is similar to filo. It is a specialty of Morocco and Algeria, where it is called r’zima (رزيمة) or tajik. It has more recently been spread by emigrants to France, Israel, and North America.
Rfissa is a Berber dish that is very popular in Morocco and is served during various traditional celebrations.
It is traditionally served with chicken and lentils and fenugreek seeds (tifiḍas in Amazigh, helba in Arabic), msemmen, meloui or day-old bread, and the blend of ras el hanout.It's traditional to serve rfissa to a woman who has just given birth, as fenugreek is supposed to be beneficial for women that are recovering from childbirth.
