  2. Asalamalikum Mad’am shkron for showing your version of this delicious food. My children are Egyptian American and sometimes my middle son loves to eat this. I made this 3 times and it came out like glue however I practice making for a year now but always looking for different techniques and style. God bless you I look forward to seeing more of your videos of your delicious Egyptian cuisine Inshallah. 😊

  3. Love your video and your explanations…very clear. Unfortunately I can only get the dried molokhia. But I remember the fresh molokhia soup with rabbit when I was in Egypt…but most times when I was there, it was with chicken. Love this soup!

  4. My father was born in Egypt as a Jew. The main think we keep remembering Egypt is for the Melochia dish.
    My husband is European and he loves this dish. My sons and grandsons love it as well. From this vidio, I understand that we can make tomato to it. I’m going to try. Thanks
