Recipe of Bamia

About the Dish;

Bamia is such a liberal stew regardless of the amount of fixings. I love serving this on a cool day with a bed of rice and a plate of blended greens. You can make this recipe vegetarian by neglecting the cheeseburger without the flavor being undermined.

I love making bamia, anyway a chance to set up the new okra ​can be really eating up. What’s more, it isn’t similarly expeditiously open at the market. Using cemented okra in bamia genuinely diminishes the time, anyway doesn’t deal the flavor.
