koshary updated

1 cup lentils
2 cups pasta
1 cup short grain rice

6 minced cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of cumin
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup of tomato paste
1 cup of water
Salt and chilli powder.

Onions fried to a crispy golden
optional: Fried boiled egg or more traditional which is chickpeas boiled then dunked in some vinegar, chilli and cumin.

Boil the pasta, lentils and cook plain white rice as you normally would. (just plain boiled white rice). Once boiled mix together and sprinkle with salt, pepper and cumin. Set aside while you make the sauce. In a sauce pain fry the garlic gloves, when almost golden add the cumin and fry for further 1 minute. Add the vinegar then reduce slightly then add the tomato paste and water and cool for 15 - 20 minutes. If  needed add more water. Season with salt and ground chilli.

Serve koshari buy topping pasta lentils and macaroni with crispy fried onions, and chickpeas. ( I added the egg as a one off, but usually i make this with chickpeas so just boil some chickpeas then put them with 2 tablespoons of vinegar, chilli and cumin for more flavour.)
