Egyptian vermicelli rice turns any table into a dinner. Make it fluffy enough to receive the vegetable stew we serve with. It's made in two simple steps.


  • 1 cup Egyptian rice, medium-grain rice
  • ¼1 cup hot water
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 cup ½ inch long vermicelli (if made plain, don't use vermicelli)
  • 2 tbsp oil


  • Wash the rice to cleanse from extra starch. On medium heat, put the oil and the vermicelli together in a pot and stir it until it turns a degree darker than gold. It will turn back into golden when we cook it with the rice.
  • Add the rice to the vermicelli and stir in a gentle move with a fork until blended. Add hot water and salt, and bring the mixture to boil.
  • Turn the heat to low, cover pot and let it simmer for 18 minutes. Remove pot from heat. Remove lid and fluff cooked rice with a fork, then serve immediately.


Best served with any kind of vegetables with chicken, or meat.
You can use this recipe to do it in a rice cooker.
If you can't find short vermicelli pasta, you can break regular long vermicelli into about ½-inch pieces.
Egyptian rice can be found with other Middle Eastern ingredients in supermarkets.
