Egyptian Recipes


Egypt as a whole, and in particular the Nile Delta and Nile Valley, has long been known for its agricultural produce - indeed in Roman times, it was considered the bread basket of the Mediterranean. Modern Egyptian cuisine reflects these traditions, and Egyptian cuisine tends to emphasize vegetables and legumes.
  • Ful medames - Ful medames is a popular meal that many consider to be Egypt's national dish. it is mostly eaten for breakfast, is sometimes considered a "peasant food" and is extremely filling (the effect has been described as a "stone in the stomach"). During Ramadan, the month when participating Muslims fast between dawn and sunset, the filling nature of the dish is of course considered a great advantage. Ful medames is made by mashing (partially or completely) fava beans, and then slow cooking them. The mashed cooked beans are eaten with onion, olive oil, parsley garlic and lemon.

  • Falafel - Chickpeas or fava beans made into a ball and fried.

  • Kufta - Ground mead with onions and spices made into a meatball.

  • Malukhiyah stew - A stew made from mallow leaves and chicken stock. It is flavored using coriander and garlic, and then served with chicken and white rice.

  • Kebab halla - Beef with onions.

  • Shawarma - Slivers of meat (chicken, goat or lamb) in pita bread with hummus, cucumber and tomato.

  • Kushari - Rice served with brown lentils, chickpeas and macaroni. Kushari is served topped with a spicy tomato sauce, garlic and vinegar. Caramelized onions are often used an a garnish. Although traditionally a vegetarian dish, nowadays kushari is sometimes topped with shawarma meat or fried liver.
