Dr. Isa's Lentils and Rice - Majadrah
This page is in progress

In the Star Trek sim , the USS Eagle, we play a variety of characters from different cultures and different worlds. A sim is an online role playing game. Ours is played in a chatroom. We type in text and play characters in a story.

 This is a page for Dr. Kamran Shah Isa's family and culture.  He is half Syrian and half Afghani. If you would like information on our Star Trek RPG just email me or check out the rest of this web page with the links below. The recipe comes from his mother's side of his family. This is the beginning of a new section on Arabic food and Arabic recipes.
