Egyptian Baba Ganoush For Beginners

Egyptian baba ganoush

 

The Egyptian Baba Ganoush salad is one of the most delicious appetizers, which is eaten with many meals, such as fava beans or Egyptian falafel.

 

One of the most famous times when Egyptians eat the Pope Ganoush salad is during Ramadan due to its wonderful taste and also the various ways of decorating it.

 

How to choose eggplant to prepare the Egyptian Baba Ghanoush?

 

As long as we decided to prepare the best Egyptian Baba Ghanoush, let me, my dear friends, share with you the best Arabic food tips for choosing the eggplant.

First, the size: the size of the eggplant should not be too big or too small (it should be medium).

Secondly, the fiber should not be very strong, as this is evidence of the presence of many seeds, which makes the beetroot more bitter.

Also, the eggplant fibers should not be too soft, because this means that it contains a lot of water inside, and the remaining amount of the eggplant will be little after grilling.

 

What is the difference between the Egyptian Baba Ganoush and the Syrian Baba Ganoush?

 

As a general rule, the Egyptian Baba Ghanoush differs from the Syrian one in adding tahini, as in the Egyptian Baba Ghanoush it is necessary to add tahini as a main ingredient, but in the Syrian Baba Ghanoush, no tahini is added.

Also in terms of beautifying the dish, the Syrian Baba Ghanoush must decorate it with pomegranate seeds, while the Egyptian Baba Ghanoush decorates the dish mostly with oil and parsley
