THE RECIPE

Koshari – Egyptian Rice and Lentils with Spicy Tomato Sauce

The national dish of Egypt

After a weekend of heavy holiday dishes and lots of cooking, this national dish of Egypt is a light, yet filling midweek solution. It includes a blend of soft lentils, rice, and macaroni noodles under a chili tomato sauce and fresh crispy onions. As Kimberly explains in her recipe, the meal is traditionally put together by street vendors. Each ingredient is piled high onto plates into a tomato-onion flavor combination readily devoured by hungry patrons. What makes this recipe especially different is the homemade baharat spice blend Kimberly creates- dry roasted peppercorns, cloves, and onions all blend together and highlight the Indian roots of this dish.
