    Mia in Germany's Note:

    Traditional soup of the coptic christians of Egypt. The website where I got this from says that nowadays it is eaten all over Egypt and that there are even restaurants specialised in this soup. The number of servings is a guess because it was not mentioned. Submitted for Visit Egypt / NAME forum May 2012.
