Food from Arab World

 

Most cities are recently seeing an increase in restaurants serving Arabic food. Arabic food, it seems, is only just becoming familiar to the Western world, particularly in the United States. However, there are a few Arabic foods that most people have already tried or at least heard about.

 

Some Popular Arabic Dishes

 

Egyptian Food

 

Ful and Falafel: can be cooked several ways: in ful midamess, the whole beans are boiled, with vegetables if desired, and then mashed with onions, tomatoes, and spices. This mixture is often served with an egg for breakfast, without the egg for other meals . A similar sauce, cooked down into a paste and stuffed into aysh baladi (Bread), is the filling for the sandwiches sold on the street. Alternatively, ful beans are soaked, minced, mixed with spices, formed into patties (called ta'miyya in Cairo and falafel in Alexandria), and deep-fried. These patties, garnished with tomatoes, lettuce, and tahina sauce, are stuffed into aysh and sold on the street.

Koshari: Lentils, Rice, spaghetti and Marconi with Tomato Sauce and garlic sauce and chili. It considered being a fast food in the Middle East, especially in Egypt. It is easy and inexpensive to make.
