HOUGHTON -- Khana Khazana brings Syrian food to Michigan Tech TOMORROW, Friday, July 18, at the lunch cart in front of the Van Pelt and Opie Library. Robi Bdeir, a PhD student in biochemistry and molecular biology, will cook falafel with hummus and ijja.
Falafel is made from dehydrated chickpeas that are soaked overnight, then ground with onions, parsley, cilantro, garlic and Syrian spices. Fried to a golden brown, falafel is served with hummus dip and ijja, an omelet-like dish made with zucchini, egg and parsley.
Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It costs $6, cash only.
Khana Khazana is a cooperative effort of international students and Michigan Tech Dining Services.
