    Cliche I know but for me it's probably Indian. When I embraced Islam I met up with these Indian brothers once a week to learn salah etc and they usually brought something their wife cooked. It was nearly impossible for me to get halal meat at the time so sometimes it was the only meat I'd had all week so I still have a soft spot

    Other than that Afghan food is pretty tasty and the stuff the African brothers cook at the masjid is really nice. They make this spicy sauce with chopped up chillies that is like my second favorite sauce on earth alhamdulilah

    European food is what i grew up with and is what i usually cook for myself so it's normal for me but you guys coming from other cultures might find it exotic I don't know. Google pavlova for a delicious dessert

    Do you know the names of these dishes? I've saved a few south Asian recipes like biryani and lamb korma, they look delicious.

    Satay with peanut sauce (chicken from Java):img_2425.jpg

    Tempeh (soy bean, from Java)Sate-Tempe-Bumbu.jpg

    Rendang (spicy beef, from Sumatra)rendang-padang.jpg

    Re: What's your favorite ethnic food

    My favorite cuisine is Egyptian/Arab/Turkish AL-HAMDU ILLAH RABBIL ALAMEEN wa ma’shaa’ALLAH

    Hamam Mahshi which is an Egyptian countryside dish

    Hamam means the Pigeon bird

    Mahshi Stuffed

    Here is a link about Hamam Mahshi http://www.theatlantic.com/health/ar...-pigeon/66393/

    Lamb Fatteh which is another Egyptian Dish.

    Lamb Mandi found in Egypt https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandi_%28food%29

    Brother I don't understand your rep. Did you say that just as a general comment about modern society or were you hoping it could be raised as a topic on the show?

    I was hoping you will raise that topic on your show in'shaa'ALLAH that is why I had repped you on your thread about your show with that topic.

    It's a good suggestion. Although I'd already selected a different main topic, but I also think your idea is worth mentioning as well. Hope you'll be tuning in tonight inshaAllah 9pm (ie in about 20 minutes)

    It's like jelly noodle made from rice flour. You get the green colour from pandan leaf extract. It's so refreshing on a hot, sunny day!

    Sister with all due respect for you , Za'atar (Arabic: زَعْتَر‎‎,) is a Egyptian/Arab/North African/Turkish spice blend mixture and it is not a food dish that you can eat.

    By the way is renzi your name an Italian family last name?

    Yeah fries are necessary. I think in the west such foods are odd because westerns do not use rice. I do not think even east Asians eat so much rice as Iranians eat. But be careful man excessive rice can make you fat

    I've only ever tasted Westernised versions of 'ethnic' food which is vastly different to the authentic.

    I did have something from a pop-up Asian food vendor recently which was so delicious. In terms of flavour, it was like popping candy in my mouth it was super-tasty and I could have eaten it all week! I don't know what it was called though as I dislike buying anything from small shopkeepers as I get embarrassed easily, so instead of reading the labels properly, I panicked and asked to have the same as the woman in front of me!

    I heard Al-Buḵari say, “I have never eaten leek", So I asked, “And why is that?” He replied, “I hate to annoy anyone with its foul smell".
