Molokhia is a very traditional Egyptian dish, and you either hate it or love it (unfortunately, although I’m vegetarian, I belong to the first group).
It’s a stew made up of a leafy green, cut into tiny pieces and prepared in chicken, beef or seafood broth mixed with ground coriander and fried garlic.
Generally served with rice, bread, and choice of chicken, beef or seafood. The way this dish is made depends on the region in Egypt.
Cities along the coast like Alexandria might eat molokhia with shrimp or fish.
Molokhia is named after the leafy green that the stew consists of, also known as jute mallow (corchorus olitorius).
It’s packed with essential vitamins such as iron and potassium, Vitamin C, & Vitamin B6 and therefor a great, healthy Egyptian food.
