Qatar is located in desert so the number of ingredients locally available is very limited. But now they are growing many vegetables in farms. The most important influence on Qatar cuisine is Arab  cuisine so. In the modern age foods from abroad have been introduced to Qatar.But the traditional recipes still have remain the same.

Interesting recipe, though if I were to substitute the egg I would not know what to use...but surely a good choice for the country.

I wanted to make this sweet vermicelli but since it has to be served with eggs, prepared another dish instead. Good one Padma...
