Egyptian Cuisine: Unique Egyptian Ingredients

For full recipes, please visit our recently launched Egyptian Cuisine Recipes web site.

Some ingredients in the Egyptian cuisine are not found in other places.

  • Samnah Baladi سمنة بلدي (Egyptian Ghee) This is the Egyptian Ghee, made from the Water Buffalo's Milk, and therefore totally white and harder than normal cow's ghee.
  • Zebdah Baladi زبدة بلدي (Egyptian Butter) This is obtained by melting the Samnah Baladi. The result is hard white butter rolled into large balls.
  • Laban Rayeb لبن رايب This is a uniquely countryside product. This is a youghurt like product, made more or less like regular youghurt, but in special earthen ware containers (called Shalya شالية very similar to a large flower pot) after warming the traditional oven.
