Ful/ Fava Bean Dip

Monday, January 28th, 2008


I was on a weekend retreat when I discovered this dish. It was a kind of moroccon/turkish dip which is eaten with a piece of bread.

I found the recipe online. But when I was going to the local grocery store, I met one of my neighbor. She basically told me another recipe, which I ended up using with minor modifications. Her recipe involves the famously known chillies -madam jeanette- whose “huh hah huh hah” factor ranks high up there. So if you cant tolerate spicy food, leave out this ingredient. I am not quite satisfied with the result. I may tweak it in the near future or you may want to perfect it yourself :)

Ingredients: (Lihat dibawah untuk resep dalam bahasa Indonesia)
half of onion, chopped.
3 cloves of garlic chopped.
1/2 cup of parsley, chopped.
1/2 tsp ground corriander.
1 suriname chillie (madame jeanette), crushed. (optional)
3 tsb of sambal oelek.
1 or 2 tomatoes, cubed (the amount is to your liking)
1 can of fava bean / or you can use a can of “wittenbonen en tomaten sauce”,
sugar and salt to taste

saute the onion and garlic on a medium heat with a skillet pan. Wait until they turn translucent.
Add sambal oelek.
Add the rest of the ingredient, let it cook for a few minutes.
Crush most of the fava bean with a spoon.

serving suggestion:
server with a baquette or your favorite bread
