Koshary, Egypt

It seems like such a simple dish — rice, brown lentils, chickpeas, and pasta topped off with tangy tomato sauce and caramelized onions — but Koshary (or Koshari) is packed full of rich flavors. While it really is a derivative of the older Indian dish Kitchiri (meaning rice and lentils) this food is considered to be the national dish of Egypt and is easy to find, from restaurants to food stalls and household kitchens.
