Koshary is Egypt's national dish & is served in almost every restaurant, every home, and on every street corner all across Egypt.
Koshary is pure comfort food and is made with lentils, macaroni noodles and rice in a single dish and it’s then topped with a spicy tomato sauce that uses a special Middle Eastern spice blend. It's then topped with crispy, fried onions.
Street vendors serve the dish from carts to people eagerly waiting in line. You can hear the sound of the 'koshary man' knocking his metal spoon against the side of the bowl from afar.
