    How to Cook dishes from the Arab world


    Arabia The Arab world is a vast region of Southwest Asia and North Africa that stretches from the Arabian Sea in the East, to the Atlantic Ocean in the West, and from the Mediterranean Sea to the Horn of Africa. It encompasses the whole of the Arabian peninsula, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, the whole of North Africa, Mauritania, Sudan, Djibouti, and Somalia. Of course, not everybody in this area is an Arab, or defines themselves as ethnically Arab, and likewise many Arabs live outside of this area, but nevertheless many people find the Arab world to be a useful term to describe this region.

    In terms of cuisine, it should be noted that different countries and regions within the Arab world, do have their own particular ingredients and dishes, and there are distinct differences between (for example) Egyptian cuisine, Lebanese cuisine, and Moroccan cuisine.

    Some popular Arab recipes and dishes include:
    • Bathenjan makli - This is a dish from Lebanese cuisine. It is made from fried eggplant with tahini sauce, lettuce, parsley and tomatoes. Sumac, bell peppers, lemon, and garlic are also often added. The dish is usually eaten with bread.

    • Falafel - Balls or patties made from fava beans or chickpeas, and fried.

    • Ful medames - This very filling dish is considered one of Egyptian cuisine's signature dishes. Its principal ingredient is fava beans which are mashed and slow cooked. The dish also contains onion, parsley, garlic, lemon and olive oil. Ful medames is usually as a breakfast, which is particularly useful during the Ramadan period, when participating Muslims do not eat or drink between dawn and sunset).

    • Mansaf - This is the national dish of Jordan. It is made from lamb which is cooked in a yoghurt-like product can jameed. The dish is served on a large platter, at the bottom of which is a layer of flatbread (markook), then rice, then the meat, then a garnish of almonds and pine nuts, and finally a sauce poured on top.

    • Masgouf - A traditional dish from Iraq. A fish is cut open and spiced with pepper, salt and tamarind. The skin is brushed with olive oil, and then slowly cooked until the fish becomes crispy. Before serving, the masgouf is sprinkled with lemon, and it is eaten garnished with chopped onions and tomatoes, as well as with flatbread, rice, salad, and pickles.

    • Mrouzia - This is one of Moroccan cuisine's most famous dishes. It is prepared in a tajine (a special heavy clay pot), and is made from lamb with raisins and almonds.

    • Musakhan - This is a Palestinian dish made of roasted chicken with onions. It is flavored with allspice, fried pine nuts, saffron and sumac, and is eaten on top of taboon bread (flatbread).

    • Sfiha - Meat pies, originally from Syria, although they have since become popular throughout the region. The pies made from ground mutton and have no top dough.

    • Shawarma - Thinly cut slivers of meat (chicken, goat or lamb). It is eaten in pita bread, usually with hummus, tomato and cucumber.
