Chef Sandra Makary shows us another traditional Middle Eastern dish in this episode of her Masterclass, Middle Eastern Adventures- the Egyptian snack food hawawshi.
Hawawshi is a pita stuffed with minced meat and spiced onions, pepper, parsley and sometimes even with chilli. There are two major variants of hawawshi- Baladi and Alexandrian hawawshi, which gives you an indication of how long it's been around!
Join Chef Sandra as she expertly makes her own hawawshi.
