Egyptian Cuisine: Snacks

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

Some snacks are known as tasali تسالي in Egypt. 

  • Lebb لب - Roasted Water Melon Seeds
  • Sudani سوداني - Peanuts. These are roasted and salted, with large salt grains sticking to them. The best variety, in my opinion, are those Sun Dried in Aswan and Upper Egypt, having a distinct flavor to it.
  • Lebb Suri لب سوري - Roasted Sun Flower Seeds
  • Lebb Abyad لب أبيض- Roasted Pumpkin seeds
