The Perfect Egyptian Rice with Vermicelli
Egyptian rice is a very short grain rice, grown in Egypt. It is not cooked the same way as medium or long grain rice. When cooked, it is supposed to have a fluffy texture, not at all sticky.
Recipe Summary test
Most often, Egyptian rice is cooked with very short vermicelli pasta. If you don't have short vermicelli pasta available, you can break regular long vermicelli into about 1/2-inch pieces.
