Overview

Join us as we make the ultimate Middle Eastern comfort food, Kushari: Egypt's national dish!

Kushari consists of very cheap ingredients that pack a flavorful punch: pasta, rice, chickpeas, lentils, crispy onions, all drenched in a spicy tomato sauce. This dish dates back to the 19th century when Egypt was experiencing a wave of multicultural influence to the extent where kitchens were full of new foods such as pasta. At the end of the week, Egyptians would just throw all the leftover food together into a huge dish that became known as Kushari. Nowadays, it is Egypt's most popular street food.
