Nutritional & cultural curiosities
The ancient Egyptian’s diet included milk, cheese, butter and eggs. The Egyptians kept cattle, goats and sheep. Their milk was kept in egg-shaped earthen jars, plugged with grass as protection against insect and was drunk shortly after milking. It is often assumed that - because of the hot climate in which milk spoils in a few hours - milk not destined for immediate consumption was processed into something similar to quark or yoghurt-like labaneh.

Useful tip
Other sorts of vegetables can be added to serving example Egyptian tomatoes, cucumber etc.
