While growing up in Kuwait, dad used to bring us Mushakal sandwiches every now and then. Mushakal is a vegetable sandwich that is loaded with falafel, fresh veggies such as lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and fried veggies such as fried aubergine, cauliflower and potatoes. Mushakal means “mixed” in Arabic and it is a common term used for a falafel sandwich in Kuwait. Often pita bread or a burger bun is used to make this sandwich. I just love it and I miss eating it terribly. So the other day I planned to make some.
For the falafels, you can use this recipe
What you will need for a yummy mushakal sandwich:
- Fried Aubergines
- Fried Potatoes
- Fried Cauliflower
- Finely chopped cucumbers
- Finely chopped tomatoes
- Finely chopped lettuce
- Tahini Sauce
- Pita Bread
- Sprinkle some salt on the fried vegetables.
- Make pockets out of the pita bread and stuff it with all the cooked and raw vegetables. Add the falafels in it and pour some tahini sauce. I used hummous as the sauce for the sandwich.
