This dish bring so many childhood memories, it was sold by street vendors back home! We used to buy it and munch on it on the way home from school.
My husband misses eating this delectable treat and i been promising him to make some for him for a while, so today I made some and it was amazing.


Last week I made him the Lupini Beans and it was delicious as well.


It’s easy to make and delicious to eat.


1 bag of large dry fava beans or Lupini beans about 1 LB and 8 Oz

6-8 cups of cold water

1/2 tbsp. of cumin

1/2 tbsp. sea salt

2 tbsp. of chopped fresh flat leaves parsley.

2 tsps. baking powder

Place the beans in to a large pot rinse well and discard of the water.

Add 6-8 cups of cold water and let stand on the counter covered over night!

Do not mix the beans if you are making both kinds, use two different pots for each beans and follow the rest of the recipe!

Next day, place the pot covered on high heat and bring to boil, lower the heat to simmer, stir in the baking powder, cover and simmer for 35-40 minutes or until fork tinder.

Drain the beans and wash with cold water for two minutes to stop the cooking process, drain completely.

Add Salt and Cumin and mix well, do not add Cumin to the Lupini beans as it wont work with it, sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley and serve.

Pack the left over in airtight container and save in the refrigerator for about a week if they last that long!
