Fatta is another cheap carb-load, though it can be paired up with meat as well for a slightly more well-balanced meal. It’s even simpler than koshari – rice and bread soaked in garlic vinegar, then layered like a sandwich and topped with fried garlic. Very plain, very filling. Christine said it was almost too vinegary for her, and we both enjoy vinegar quite a bit. But there you are: vinegar, rice, bread.
