About the Dish:

The national cuisine of Egypt and a very well-liked street meal is Koshary. This dish is incredibly well-liked by workers and students, and it is perfect for large-scale catering events like gatherings. It can be made at home and is available all over Egypt at roadside stands and dining establishments; some focus solely on Koshary, while others offer it as one of many options. Koshary can be categorized as vegan because it is traditionally cooked without the use of any animal products, as long as all frying is done in vegetable oil..
