Arabian Nights Made Easy
When it comes to recipes we tend to keep to something simple, a nice easy meal we can knock out for ourselves or our loved ones in a couple of minutes with as little effort as possible. And when it comes to homemade meals, variety is the spice of life and what’s more varied than a Middle Eastern meal. We’ve scoured the internet to find what we think are the two best, quick and most important, easy meals to make.
First of all we have the Falafel, an iconic and incredibly popular dish in the Middle East is sold on street corners by Vendors in the same style as Hot Dogs are in America. Falafels are normally served in the form of a sandwich, crammed inside pita bread alongside tomatoes, sliced lettuce and occasionally tahini. Usually it’s accompanied by Humus or salad.
Relatively simple and easy to make:
1.Place Chickpeas in a bowl and pour in cold water, soak them over night and drain the following morning.
A nice little factoid, in Egypt there’s now a McDonald’s branch that serves their own version of the Falafel, the McFalafel. This is a great sign that western culture is starting to spread to the Middle East, especially after the turmoil brought about from the ‘Arab Spring’.
In Egypt now there are even Arab casinos available to play at as well as, strangest of all, online casino sites. For example, this site www.casinomumtaz.com has a few Arabic casinos on its list that you should probably try out, even if it’s just out of curiosity.
Next up is the iconic kebab.
A tasty chicken kebab, this simple meal involves just marinating your chicken and then combining it with a variety of vegetables or other meat if you prefer on a kebab skewer.
You can serve your kebabs alongside any number of side dishes from chips, to various dips and even a nice selection of rice. Using these simple recipes you’ll find yourself having an Arabian adventure in no time.
