This Middle Eastern dip is made with broad beans, chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, cumin and tomato puree.
I'm Egyptian, &foul modammas is authentically Egyptian. That recipe is overwhelming &I can make 3 different recipes from those ingredients! Your Syrian friend might have made that up, it's ok but it shouldn't be called foul modammas! if u like the ingredients of this recipe, just mash the beans up with a fork before adding the rest of ingredients. NO Blender! 1*Egyptian foul modammas is simply mashing the contents of the can (with or w/out its liquid, depending on preference) mash it lightly with adding lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, little dry coriander, salt &pepper. 2*Another dish u do the same with adding some tahini (that's the Alexandrian version). 3*another version add cucumber, onion &tomato chopped very small &mixed. all the above 3 recipes are served in room temperature. 4*another dish served warm is sautee in a Tbsp of oil 2 cloves of garlic splash with diced tomato then add the beans &the same spices but no lemon!(this one is called foul bel ta'aleya) In our mums group we are 6 nationalities & they all love it with all the different recipes! you can also serve it beside eggs for a filling brunch! - 17 Sep 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'm watching an Ethiopian woman smashing the competition in the 10,000 meter race in the Olympics, London 2012! About this Foul Mudammas. I really like what I got with the changes I made. All Favas, no garbanzos, no water, 15 oz can tomato sauce, double the tahini and cumin. Excellent. - 03 Aug 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This tastes good, but it looks just awful. I think the color is just really bad. My blender couldn't process the whole amount at once, so I had to divide it and blend separately. I never got it to a super smooth consistency. - 13 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
