I don't know any egyptians that cook with Harissa but I LOVE it lol. Very nice fast rice with lots of flavor. I cooked mine with sagouk and peppers and used can diced tomates because I didn't have tomato sauce on hand. DH was very happy.Thanks for a nice dish. Made for Ramadan Tag 09.

Simple to make and very tasty! I have to make about three batches a day to keep my family satisfied! Just one adjustment: I don't often have harissa available and I also find it a bit too hot so I just add a little paprika and chili powder to the tomato mixture. Works out fine for all of us!
