Fava Beans (Ful Medames) at Pars Market

It’s a pretty safe bet that any form of food that has been found within a tomb from thousands of years ago, must have been a culinary hit. Remnants of Ful Medames were uncovered in a number of the 12th Dynasty (1991-1786 B.C.) Pharonic tombs in Egypt.

Ful Medames (also known as fūl mudammas or foul medames), is a nutritious Egyptian staple made primarily of mashed fava beans.
It can be compared to forms of Mexican re-fried beans but with Egyptian flare.
In Egypt the beans are boiled down, mushed together and seasoned with salt and olive oil.  After being served, some choose to add toppings like tomatoes, onions, parsley, chili pepper, lemon juice, or even a splash of clarified butter or extra fat.

At Pars Market we carry very wide selection of Ful Medames with different flavors like Strained Fava, Plain Fava, Large Fava, with Chickpea,  with Cumin, with Chilli, with Egyptian recipe, Lebanese recipe, with Saudi recipe,  
Today, there’s no doubt that the dish is one of the most common and popular forms of Egyptian Street Food and probably the national dish. beside the Egypt it is a staple meal in Sudan, it is popular in the cuisines of the Levant, Somalia, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia and most other Arab countries….
