The authentic Egyptian Koshari is a great street food, and you can find vendors all over Egypt selling it. Typically, the sauce is served to the side. Egyptians us ditalini pasta and also add chickpeas. I soak the chickpeas overnight, and then add them to the lentils to get extra cooking - they will be slightly crunchy. This does require every sauce pan I own to make, plus my skillet, but the results are yummy! Jordanian Koshari does not have the pasta. You can also make this with less rice and more lentils if you are concerned about carbs. I've seen this made on the streets of Cairo, and they use quite a bit of dried pepper and cumin. It should have a spicy afterbite.
