The variety of Egyptian recipes is endless. They go back a very long time. Like any crossroads culture, Egyptian cuisine has picked and chosen those ingredients and food that grew best as well as best met the flavor and nutritional needs of the people. Bridging Africa and Asia as it does, Egypt has a lot from what to choose.
However, Egyptian cuisine maintains its uniqueness. After thousands of years, rice and bread remain staple foods, and molokhiyya (a spinach-like vegetable) and ful mudammas (cooked, creamy fava beans), a national dish, tahini (sesame paste), kofta (spicy, minced lamb), and kebab (grilled lamb pieces) are the most popular, are nearly as popular as long ago.
