Fattah goes all the way back to ancient Egypt where it was served in big feasts, celebrations such as weddings and the birth of a new baby.
Still today Fattah is the main dish on the first day of the Islamic feast (Eid-al-Adha). It is a combination of crispy bread, rice, meat, and vinegar/tomato sauce.
For special occasions, the meat used is lamb but on any other ordinary day, beef is used. It’s also commonly seen eaten the Lebanese way with rotisserie chicken and tomaya.
Although it’s a simple dish it is satisfying and you won’t be disappointed.
