A feast fit for a pharaoh... the Egyptian menu looks good

Well after searching through google and reading a variety of webpages from around the world.

Myself and the boys have decided to try our hand at the following Egyptian favourites. Added and extra main meal as my family is coming round to join in the adventure.

Main meal:

Kushari - a traditional Egyptian dish made with green lentils, pasta and rice mixed together with caramelised onions. It is served with a tomato based topping and finished off with a crispy onion garnish. It is best served hot with a side of garden salad.

Macaroni Bechamel - A ground meat mixture between two layers of macaroni smothered in a creamy bachamel sauce.

Both will be served with a salad

and for dessert....

Mehalabeya - an Egyptian cold dessert like a pudding


The tastebuds are looking forward to these. Hopefully mine turn out as nice as the pictures :-)
