Hummus – the easiest recipe in Egypt

fresh hummus and pita bread

Hummus

 

Who does not know Hummus? One of the top 10 most famous Egyptian dishes. Certainly all of you have tried this food. And if you do not have this food in your country then you may have asked yourself how it can be prepared at home?

I was also looking for a recipe for a really great hummus. But it was a challenge because in Egypt it is worth to buy than to make it at home. And the most wonderful hummus I’ve ever eaten was in Siwa oasis. I know that I mention this place very often but really the tastes from this area are completely different. and not only for hummus but also for other meals. I don’t know if they have any secret ingredients or just that food is better in itself because of the better environment.

But today I describe you at least the basic hummus we eat in Alexandria. It is the simplest recipe you will find in Egypt. The basic colour of hummus is beige, but you can taste and colour it by vegetables – most tomatoes and green pepper. Then also by eggs and even by avocados. There are really many possibilities. Try to experiment and write in the comments what you made..

 

INGREDIENTS

400 g of chickpeas

100 ml of water

2 Tablespoon of Tahini paste

1  lemon

1 tablespoon of olive oil

pinch of salt

2 cloves of garlic

How to make it

Put everything in a blender and mix for 1 minute. And you can serve it right away. It is suitable for salads, main food or just for a snack with Arabic bread.

Tip: Hummus can be flavoured with tomatoes, peppers, eggs or anything you want. Just choose by your taste and creativity.

If you have trouble with buying the Tahini paste, don’t worry… I will write to you the recipe next time!

I hope you liked the recipe, so please give me your like, comment and don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter.

Fateer-The Bread of Gods

f1

Every day when I went to work a friend was waiting for me in the rest room. We always had breakfast together before we started working. And what we had For a breakfast??

In Egypt, mostly we eat for a breakfast eggs, falafel, vegetables, beans but this we had nowhere to cook in the staff room and of course we did not want to take all of this from our homes. So my Egyptian friend always brought two Feteer,filled by powdered sugar and wrapped in a roll of paper.

I remember as it was today when she brought me my first Fateer ever. I’ve never eaten anything like that before, but it was really delicious in her way. I couldn’t get enough of it. And so it became our tradition and we ate it every single day.

Fateer from street which I was eatng every day in work

 

Best of all was that Feteer costed only 1 LE! I tried to buy the Fateer several times but I never found it as delicious as she always brought me. I don’t know why.  Was it Really different? Or it was too delicious for me because someone else brought it to me? I will never know actually, but it does not matter. What matters are those wonderful memories of it.

However, I was very pleasantly surprised when I read that the Fateer is from the time of Pharaoh. And it’s not just ordinary food. It is actually bread that was made sweet from honey, and the Pharaohs used it as food for the Gods and the afterlife. And how do I know? A recipe for feteer meshaltet was found in the tomb of  Eighteenth Dynasty Vizier Rekhmire… And coincides with today’s recipe !! Isn’t it amazing? Only with a small variation that today Fateer is not eaten only with honey but also with powdered sugar or cheese

Fateer also represents generosity and affection of the country. Nowadays, it is a dish that is asked by kings and presidents who visit Egypt.

In addition, the French copied the recipe from the Egyptians and created a famous croissant !! The recipe is really easy. I did it myself for the first time and succeeded. So no worry and go make it…

We have two ways to make the Fateer. Both ways are made from the same ingredients. I’ll write you the one I did and the other ways show you in the video. Both ways are correct and it depends only on you, which will suit you.
