Jujey's Egyptian Koshari!

>> Thursday, January 14, 2010

I got this recipe from my sister in law who is Egyptian. You wouldn't really think that this would taste that great, but it does!


2 large onions
1/4 cup oil
3.5 cups water
1 cup lentils
3 tsp salt
1 cup rice

1 package of pasta

Fried Onions
2 large onions diced
1/4 cup oil

Galic Sauce
4 garlic cloves crushed
1/2 cup vinegar
3/4 cup water
1 tsp salt
  • To make rice, add chopped onions to oil, and fry until dark brown (almost burnt)
  • Add 2.5 cups water, 1 cup lentils, 2 tsp salt. Cover and let boil until lentils are halfway cooked.
  • Add 1 more cup of water, 1 cup of rice, and 1 tsp of salt. Cover and let simmer until cooked.
  • To make fried onions, take 2 large onions diced, and fry in oil until almost burnt. Drain from oil and let cool on paper towel to absorb access oil.
  • To make the garlic sauce, blend together, garlic, vinegar, water, and salt
  • Boil pasta until cooked.
To arrange plate, add rice, then pasta, fried onions, and drizzle garlic sauce over it. Also a lot of koshari recipes call for a spicey tomato sauce to be added also, but my family doesn't like it, so I don't make it.
Eat and enjoy

YUM! We call this mojadara without the pasta though. My entire family loves it. I serve it with plain yogurt.
