The first participant to join the cooking contest on Libya is Platainleafs. The great fish dish cooked by Padma Rekha, the blog´s author is Libyan Pouched Fish - tuna steaks in a great seasoning.
The Italian language blog Labna - amore in cucina is the second one to hand in a recipe. Bamia is a great looking okra dish with chicken and tomato.
As many times before Sweet Artichoke is also joining us very loyal. This time with a sweet dish. Maqrood are semolina and date cookies that go very well with coffee or tea.
The libyan food blog has never participated before this event. This time though it is participating with quite a few original dishes. The first one is called Kofta bil Batinja, a great aubergine wrap with tomato sauce.
Basbousa with dates is the second dish to come from the libyan food blog.

Fried fish stuffed with potatoes is a typical Libyan dish. It is called Mbatan Kawali and look fabulous. Check it out!
Couscous bil Hoot is another great libyan fish dish. It is couscous dish with fish served with a vegetable sauce.

Ftat Misrati is a flat bread made on the stove top. It can be used for wrapping food. The libyan version of the sandwich ;)
Who ever thought one could not roast a salad was wrong. here you go! The dish is called Salata Mashwiya
Tajin Sfinari bil Zaytun is a great looking lamb dish. Ginger, cumin and caraway seeds season this dish.
Last but not least i want to introduce Makaruna Imbaukha bil Khalta to you. It is a bit of an unusual dish featuring chicken as well as lamb liver. Another very typical dish for the region.
