Molokhia is one of Egypt’s most popular dishes. Molokhia, the grassy-tasting, green vegetable soup made with minced Jute leaves which is nutritious and delicious over rice and chicken. It is a traditional Egyptian soup that was typically eaten by royalty in Ancient Egypt, but eventually became a very common food.
Molokhiyah – it is spelled in a lot of ways! – is basically the leaves of jute plant. It is very commonly used in cuisines in the Arab and North African region. The leaves in itself are slightly bitter and when cooked, gives a very slimy appearance with a fish-like smell. It is usually made into soup or stew and served with plain white rice.
