About this recipe: A delicious vegetarian meal that is of the most famous recipes from Egypt. Very traditional Egyptian fare. If you can't find black beluga lentils, try brown or Puy lentils. To save time, you can prepare the lentils the day before and reheat before serving.
I would like to try this but there are too many pots and pans to be used-not possible in my matchbox kitchen :/ - 04 Jul 2011
my husband is egyptian and this is the first egyptian meal i cooked for him, he loved it, but also i made a beef stew onthe side to go with it , which was so good, takes time to cook but it was worth it - 25 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I spent a month in Egypt last year and this was very similar to the koshary we bought in street stalls every couple of days. The only addition that I would make to complete it is French fried onions as a topping and a side of hot sauce. Thanks for the recipe. - 18 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
