Kosharee is a traditional Egyptian dish and it is sooo good. Here's how I made it yesterday.
I used this recipe but tweaked it a bit to my liking.
Save the oil to cook the rice and use for the sauce...Gives it great onion flavor.
Brown them but don't burn. It's fine line.
Drain the lentils and mix in with the cooked rice.
I used regular Egyptian rice with vermicelli. The sauce is more authentic when you brown some minced garlic in the onion oil then add a little white vinegar. Then add the rest of the sauce ingredients and simmer.
Top with the onions and chick peas if you have any. It's good and filling. My kids love it!
