The Best Two Authentic Egyptian Okra (Bamya)

Egyptian Okra

 

 

We, as Egyptians, are famous for many Arabic recipes. In fact, we put our own mark on any Arab food, simply because eating is linked to all our special occasions.

That is why we have modified many recipes, which over time seem to have been invented by us

Among these recipes are Molokhia,Kofta Dawood Basha , Kebab Halla, as well as okra

 

In this post, I will share with you the two most famous Egyptian ways to make okra.

The first recipe is using tomato and meat sauce, and this recipe is eaten by Egyptians in the capital and major cities inside such as Egypt. This recipe is served with white rice or vermicelli rice

The second recipe is okra with white sauce or (Wikah ), as we Egyptians call it.

This recipe is usually eaten in the cities of Upper Egypt and the Egyptian countryside and served with pita bread.
