Mahshi – National Food

 When you come to Egypt so the first which all families will try to give you is a food called Mahshi. I would call it a national food of Egypt because it is simply everywhere. It has own secrets which only the Arabian people knows and today I will share it with you. Honestly it is little bit hard to make and need a lot of try but by the time even you can learn how to make it perfect.

But it worth to know it and at least once in your life to eat it 😀 Enjoy…
