Dim'a Musabika (Egyptian Tomato Sauce)

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Bert's Kitchen Witch

A very dear friend of mine, L.D.Osni, lived in Egypt for a while and was married to an Egyptian. She taught me this recipe. It is a little spicy, and I love it!

A very nice dish, I used it as a bed for some grilled fish and chicken. My son didn't love it by both my husband and I really thought the spices were nice and the tang of the sauce was different and enjoyable. Reviewed for ZWT III
