Kushari is carb-rich spicy comfort food from Egypt, made with layers of rice, pasta and legumes which are topped with a spicy garlic and tomato sauce and garnished with caramelized onions and (optionally) cooked chickpeas. As a vegetarian dish, it has not been popular in Libya, where meat is usually an essential part of every main meal. However, it is a great change for precisely that reason. Note: this is our own version of koshari, a modified recipe!
3 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 cloves minced garlic
2 hot red chilli chopped
3-5 finely chopped ripe tomatoes
1 tablespoon pureed tomatoes
juice of 1/2 lemon
5 tablespoon vinegar
teaspoon of salt
1 cups short grain rice, rinsed and cooked
3 medium onions thinly sliced
