Egyptian Kushari

[ back to World Foods ]

Kushari is the fast food alternative, taking only minutes to serve. It consists of a combination of macaroni, short noodles and rice, served in a small or large bowl with crispy fried onions, chick peas, black lentils and a tomato based sauce. Chilli and lemon juice are added to your own taste.

There can be varieties with tuna and chicken - absolutely delicious. Kushari is enjoyed especially during meatless days. Colourful carts pulled by the sellers of Kushari are found in the heavily populated residential areas of Cairo.
