We love food. We love the real, down to earth, tried-and-tested, handed-down-through-the-generations, local Egyptian food. Here is your chance to learn how to make these local delicacies in your own home. And just so you know what to ask for, we have added how to say the ingredients in Arabic. No more excuses, off to the souq!


Kolkasia khadra – Green taro roots

Ingredients

  • 1 kg taro roots – kol-kas-ia
  • 4 cups chicken broth – ma-gee fe-rakh
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice – a-seer la-moon
  • 1 tbsp ghee or margarine – zeb-da or sam-na
  • ½ bunch coriander, chopped – koz-ba-ra
  • ½ bunch dill, chopped – sah-bat
  • 1 bunch swiss chard – sal’
  • 8 medium cloves garlic – tom

Directions

  • Peel and cut the kolkasia into bite size cubes. Wash the kolkasia cubes very well under hot running water and drain.
  • Heat the broth in a medium deep pan over medium heat and bring to boil. Add the kolkasia cubes and lemon juice. Leave to boil for 45-60 minutes until tender.
  • Melt the ghee or margarine in a skillet over high heat. Add the garlic, coriander, dill and sal’. Stirfry until the vegetables are dark green, 3-5 minutes. Take off the heat and leave to cool.
  • Pour the contents of the skillet in a blender and blend until smooth. If the texture is too thick, add an extra ¼ cup broth.
  • Add the blended mixture to the kolkasia and broth in the pan. Leave to boil for 3-5 minutes. Serve immediately with tomato sauce and rice.
