my husband is egyptian and this is the first egyptian meal i cooked for him, he loved it, but also i made a beef stew onthe side to go with it , which was so good, takes time to cook but it was worth it :)
Sorry, we did not care for this one. The texture of the pasta with the rice kinda threw us off.
I spent a month in Egypt last year and this was very similar to the koshary we bought in street stalls every couple of days. The only addition that I would make to complete it is French fried onions as a topping and a side of hot sauce. Thanks for the recipe.
We loved it!
My husband would really prefer to never eat lentils. However, there is an Italian tradition (I'm Italian, he's not) of eating lentil soup on New Year's Day to ensure prosperity in the coming year so he has to put up with them one day a year. This year I thought I'd try something a little different and found this recipe. Hubby loves tomato so I thought this might work. I cooked the lentils and the rice in a chicken veggie broth for extra flavor, the pasta I used was some leftover pastina (really small pasta used for soups) and the tomato I used was leftover homemade pizza sauce. It was fantastic! My husband loved it and I could probably get him to eat it a couple of times a year because I love lentils and would like to be able to have them more often. Thanks for this one!
Eaten almost everywhere in the Middle East, this poor's man feast requires a lot of preparation and utensils to cook. But it is a delicious filling-up meal.
Pretty good, but definitely needs chickpeas and french fried onions on top to be like the Kosheri I had in Cairo! In the future, I will also use more lentils, crushed tomatoes instead of tomato paste, and cooking time is overestimated: only took me an hour from start to finish, including prep which can be done while rice/pasta is cooking.
Just like in Egypt! Delicious but will require several of the pots and pans in the kitchen with the rice, pasta, onion frying, & sauce all needing their own dish. So worth the work!
