From Beytna, an Arab restaurant in Madrid, we propose some of our culinary delights to discover Arabic cuisine.
Some arabic delights
The Kunafa is a sublime sweet. A dough of grated and grated wheat bathed in cream, with crunchy texture. This popular dessert, which is usually taken with coffee, is an authentic delight worthy of the most demanding palates and perfect to celebrate any special occasion.
Hummus is a very popular dish throughout the Middle East, including Lebanon, Palestine, Turkey, Greece, Syria, Armenia, Cyprus and Israel. The hummus seems to originate in Ancient Egypt, although its preparation was very different from today.
In Beytna we prepare it in the tastiest way. Thus, we make a mixture of cooked chickpeas with tahina, garlic and lemon juice, creating a puree of a certain consistency, to which salt and spices such as cumin, coriander or caraway are added.
At the time of serving (cold or warm), paprika is added, which gives it a unique taste.
Crunchy balls of ground chickpea or Falafel are a staple food throughout the East. Our Falafel is cooked with fine herbs and onion; and it is Jordanian custom to eat it as an entree. Decidedly, Falafel is an explosion of flavor.
Our roasted chicken with eggplant with basmati rice is extremely delicious. This traditional dish, which dates back to medieval Baghdad, is usually cooked to celebrate or commemorate something. It is a dish that is usually accompanied by pita bread or salad.
Mansaf, the Jordanian national dish, is the main protagonist of all celebrations. A large number of people can be served, in large round plates, so that the guests can meet and share the food. It is a food that is deeply rooted in the culture of Jordan and, when you eat your first bite, you are really trying Jordan.
This dish is carried out as follows: the lamb is cooked for a while in the yogurt itself, while the rice is cooked separately in water and stains yellow due to the use of turmeric.
The three ingredients of Mansaf are served with a thin bread called Markook or Shrak bread that is placed at the bottom of the fountain. The rice covers the bread and the meat is put on the rice.
Coming from Bedouin traditions, Jordanian hosts offer Mansaf as a sign of appreciation, respect and courage. Its components come from the harsh desert environment, however, the tenderness of the flesh is a reflection of the warm hospitality of Jordanians and an expression of how much they value their guests.
