Hamada's Authentic Egyptian Kusherie

45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
14 ingredients
6-8 servings
The following is an authentic Egyptian recipe for restaurant style kusherie--a traditional Egyptian dish. This dish was taught to me by my Egyptian husband. It is simple, healthy, inexpensive and a real crowd pleaser! I did not include directions below how to cook the rice, you need only to cook 2 cups dry rice in your favorite chicken (or vegetable if you'd like to make a vegetarian version) stock. It seems that depending on the type of rice used, the quantity of stock and cooking time can vary, so use the kind you like and cook it the way you like.
