“The meal of the poor” has become in Lebanon the meal of the wealthy, owing to the political and economic wizardry. Thank you to Lebanon’s enchanted politicians for transforming Mujadara into sushi. Sawt Beirut International paid a visit to a Lebanese residence, helping them prepare this famous Lebanese dish, keeping an eye on the ingredients’ bill.
The Mujadara meal for a small family, with a plate of vegetables next to it, costs around 160,000 Lebanese pounds.
This is the house of a disadvantaged family in Lebanon, whose members sleep with empty stomachs and imprisoned souls, while Lebanese politicians and officials enjoy a plethora of dinner selections!
