Rice Bil Shareyah (White Rice With Browned Fideo Noodles)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by cooking in cairo...

This is a staple in all Egyptian houselholds. Its super simple, but looks and tastes great! Make it place of plain white rice and serve with any dish. Especially good with Molokheya (recipe posted). Enjoy!
