    Cookgirl's Note:

    I've been planning to try this traditional Egyptian vegetarian dish (at least another version of it) for a long time and finally did a few days ago. From Arabian Delights. PS> In US, you'll find fideo vermicelli (aka 'pelo de angel' or simply fideos) in the Mexican food aisle section.

      Place the mixture in a food processor or blender along with the tomatoes. Puree to desired consistency.
    4. 4
      Place the salsa mixture back in the pan. Stir in the cumin and season to taste with salt and pepper.

      Heat up the olive oil in a large pan on medium heat and brown the fideo vermicelli and rice, stirring well to coat with the oil. Reduce heat if necessary to avoid burning.

      This was pretty good. I used regular white vinegar and left out the chillies.
