Gatherings are a chance to get together as a family or with friends and relatives around one table full of delicious dishes. Here’s a roundup of dinner ideas you can serve your guests on your upcoming gathering to impress them and make them leave wanting more!
Serve traditional meat pies, meat samosas and fatayer. For a funkier version and quicker results, substitute the traditional dough for phyllo dough. Serve traditional salads such as fattouch, beetroot and cabbage salad, or try new colorful recipes like watermelon and feta salad or peach and watercress. Slice and chop your vegetables ahead in a food processor to save time and effort.
Prepare a mouthwatering roasted lamb leg or serve a delicious meat kabsa, herb crusted lamb chops and/or lime and coriander marinated flank steak. For quick and effortless results, cook your meats using an electrical grill like for example Optigrill +!
Kunafa is a staple dessert to serve during gatherings. You can stuff it with traditional fillings such as cheese or clotted cream (kashta), or try weird fillings based on your preferences such as milk pudding or pistachio. Don’t forget baklava and ghoraybeh (butter cookies) and if you’re aiming to dazzle your guests surprise them with twisted traditional recipes such as osmalliyeh with ice cream or cheesecake in a cup.
