Jordanian food that you have to try while you are visiting Jordan
Alongside with many oriental dishes, Jordanian cuisine includes a wide variety of techniques used to serve food in special ways, which are considered as commonly developed by the Jordanian kitchen. In the following, you will find a list of most delicious and tasty meals and dishes that you have to try in Jordan;
Mansaf; is the traditional and national dish of Jordan. It takes no time to prepare for making Mansaf. They are specially using fermented dried yogurt to cook it. Mixture of traditional spices (like Zaatar) and local herbs with olive oil is added to garlic, onion and tomato sauce just to be cooked with lamb meat. It is also cooked with rice and/or bulgur. All is cooked in one pot and served in one big plate (by the way; Jordan is one of the largest producers of olives and olive oil in the world).
Much like Mansaf is the “Kabsa” meal or dish, as it also contains meat, spices and rice. All cooked in one pot with vegetables and sauces.
Maklouba is a traditional dish also. Layers of rice, meat and eggplants are cooked in one pot, which will be served as upside-down flipped dish on one plate.
“Safiha” Sandwich; is a flat bread with beef and sauces that will be cooked in rolls and cut into small pieces. The sandwich is cooked on metal sheet inside the oven or on the fire directly.
The red bulgur and Bamya; cooked Bulgur in tomato sauce served with cooked okra with tomato sauce.
