OK, this soup is very popular here in Egypt. It is usually served during the winter because it keeps you warm for a long time. Here is the recipe:





Ingredients:
  • 1 pound dry chick peas, washed and soaked in room temp. water for 3 hours.
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • 6-7 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium sized tomato
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder. You can add more if you like it spicy
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Juice of fresh lemon (poured on the soup at serving)
Preparation:
  • Boil the chick peas in water that covers the peas
  • keep boiling until they are tender. If the water evaporates, pour in more water to cover the chick peas
  • Cut the onion and tomato into quarters and add them with the garlic in the food processor. Grind the vegetables.
  • Now when the chick peas are tender, add in the vegetables, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
  • keep boiling for 10 min.
  • Serve hot with fresh drops of lemon juice in every serving.
I just need to mention that it is usually served in mugs rather than plates. Why? I don't know.
Enjoy
