Koshari is one of the national dishes of Egypt. It’s served in at every Egyptian restaurant, in every Egyptian home, and on every Egyptian street corner. An unusual combination, Koshari mixes lentils, macaroni noodles and vermicelli rice into a single dish and it’s then topped with tomato sauce that uses a special Middle Eastern spice blend, chickpeas and fried onions. The idea sounds strange…until you taste it.
Then you’ll know why this dish is a favourite among Egyptians.
