Lebanese Food Preparation
Lebanese cooking is characterised by the use of various spices, herbs and other vegetables and sometimes fruits.
Every single ingredient of the dish is there with a purpose and compliments each other. In fact, the succession of dishes also keeps in mind the flavour and 'nature' of the spices, whether hot or cool. Commonly used ingredients in Lebanese food are: Chilli (hot fiery red or green); Coconut; Garlic; Ginger; Basil, coriander (cilantro), mint and parsley; Fenugreek (methi); Saunf; Garam Masala; Mustard Seeds; Tamarind (Imli); Saffron (Kesar) and Rose water (gulkand). These are also prepared using different methods of cooking like baking, boiling, frying etc.
