Egyptian Breakfast | Ful Medames

21:02


The Egyptian cuisine heavily uses legumes and lots of vegetables.The typical breakfast consist of fol medames , ta"amia,koshari ,and flat bread like pita and some dipping sauces.The cooking uses lots of olive oil and fresh ingredients.



For the last day of serving Breakfast from countries for "Buffet on Table " I made this simple and filling Egyptian breakfast.The original idea was adapted from Vaishali's space.  I had bookmarked this breakfast recipe from her space since last year.However I didn't made all the dishes that she had presented but still I got to manage a few.
