    This traditional salad is served throughout Albania. It is often served as first course. Typically this salad has equal proportions of tomato and cucumber. The rest of the ingredients are stictly added based on personal preference. I got this recipe from some missionaries that have lived in Albania for a long time. They made a cookbook with other missionaries called "From bugs to beans." Posted for ZWT 4.

    Recipe #307882

    This mild and flavourful dish comes from Julie Sahni's 1980 book, Classic Indian Cookery. She adapted it from a dish served at the Akbar India Restaurant in New York City (which I think is now closed). I am posting this for some former exchange students who are going through severe Kabuli withdrawal. I often make this a day in advance. A few comments. I think Julie Sahni writes some of the clearest recipes on the planet -- and she does so without being patronising. Check out her books (and note that I have abbreviated some instructions slightly). Also, I wonder if Kabuli means the recipe is influenced by dishes from Kabul, Afghanistan. Finally, I have never timed this accurately, so the prep time is a bit of a guess.

    Recipe #245052

    From "Zingerman's Guide to Good Eating" (a cookbook I HIGHLY recommend), this is an absolutely delicious Catalan garlic toast soaked with tomato juices and drizzled with olive oil and sea salt! It can be topped with chopped olives, capers, anchovies or serrano ham and is incredibly wonderful when the bread is grilled and a good olive oil is used. And, this is a good way to use up fresh tomatoes that are getting a little past their prime.

    Obviously not the real way but us dairy free can have it too and it does taste very good. Algeria is a former French colony, “Café au lait” and “caffè latte” are used as contrasting terms, to indicate whether the beverage is served in the “French” or the “Italian” way – the former being in a white porcelain cup or bowl, the latter in a kitchen glass and always made from an espresso machine, whereas “Café au lait” might be espresso or dark coffee based.

    Recipe #405114

    Spain is quite famous for its seafood stews, and Shrimp Zarzuela reflects this culinary heritage. Golden Spanish olive oil, unique sherry wine vinegar, sweet paprika and fragrant saffron are the Spanish flavors that give this one-pot meal its character. The traditional seafood dishes of Spain use a variety of shellfish from the Mediterranean Sea; we simplified the recipe by focusing on ever-popular shrimp. Round out this meal by serving a premiere cheese from Spain, such as Manchego or Cabrales. From Foods of Spain.

    Recipe #370174

    "Salata is always light and crunchy, making it a perfect counterpoint to Afghan cuisine’s heavier dishes. Some Afghan cooks consider it a point of pride when the diced vegetables are small and uniform in size. The result reminds a little of a colorful bowl of confetti. For those in Afghanistan who can afford fresh vegetables, salata is a staple on the Afghan table. If you can’t get your hands on any decent tomatoes, hang onto the recipe until you can." Modified recipe off http://www.afghancooking.net by Humaira Ghilzai and Katie Morford.

    Recipe #339783

    This is a beautiful naturally gluten free cookie that looks pretty and tastes very nice masha Allah. I make these as gifts as well as for family. Make sure not to over mix when making the whole batch. I always make a half batch at a time and bake as soon as possible. Over mixing or handling the batter will make the cookies tougher. Found on http://www.afghancooking.net.

    Recipe #436165

    I have not tried this cake yet. It is supposed to be moist and rich, but not overly sweet. I'm posting this for the Zaar World Tour. It's from a Moosewood cookbook.

    I found this recipe off of the Rhodes website. I just love this bread, but don't want to go through the tedious task of making it from scratch. This is a faster way to enjoy this island favorite.

    Recipe #316305

    A rich delicious soup. Good as a part of suhoor or futoor (iftar) the meals before sunrise and fajr prayer and after sunset & maghreb prayer during the month of Ramadan. Here is what the original poster had to say, "This is not only the most popular dish in Greece but Albania as well. The two countries share many recipes. The Greek dish however uses olive oil and mint instead of butter and paprika. This is a hearty, flavorful thick soup, perfect with a light meal or cold night." Modified from a recipe found on http://www.yasalamcooking.com.

    Recipe #423877

    Afghani dish that took some time to make but was well worth it. The combination of cumin and cardamom was new and wonderful and the addition of carrots and raisins made the meal tasty and unique.

    Recipe #59168

    This is our family's traditional recipe, usually served with plain steamed couscous. As it takes quite a while, it is always a big event, everyone loves it! This is my first recipe, so be kind!! NOTE: If you cannot find Ras el Hanout in the stores, there are some recipes here on zaar! It is a mixture made of cumin, coriander, cinnamon, pepper and other spices. It can be omitted in this recipe, just go a little heavier on the other spices mentioned and add a pinch of cinnamon!
