This is called salata cadas and made with lentils slightly cooked with olive oil, garlic, and spices. Clifford Wright made this as a meze at the Tikka Grill, a restaurant on the corniche of Alexandria in Egypt. Enjoy!
This tangy and sweet beverage is found all over Egypt, but is especially popular with street vendors. From Party By the Pyramids. NOTES: Dried hibiscus flowers can be found at specialty food stores and at Latin and Caribbean markets, where they are called sorrel or flor de Jamaica.
