Fava Beans Recipe

Ok. I might not be an expert in cooking event the fact that I love food so much. But today I am going to write down a recipe for fava beans or also known as foul medammas. Bear in mind this is an Asian recipes with lots of spices.

First. How the hell does this fava beans look like?

Like this.

This is by kimball. Actually I didn't know that they sell fava beans in Malaysia because we always bought ours from Singapore but the other day phabmister found this at one of the local store. One can can serve up to 4 people.

Ok, ok enough of ramblings. Back to the recipe.

The Ingredients:

200g minced meat
2 spoons of blended chillies
2 spoons of chicken curry powder
6 shallots - blend
3 onions- blend
1 inch of ginger -blend

For Garnishing:

1 red onion, diced
1 tomato, diced
2 green chillies - cut into small pieces
2 red chillies - cut into small pieces

First, crush the beans into a coarse paste then put aside. Heat the pan with some oil. Add shallots, onion, ginger, curry powder and blended chillies together, mix well. When the mixture is ready, add minced meat and add little bit of water. Cook till the meat gets tender.

By this time, you can smell the delicious aroma made from the spices.Like yumm!

When the meat is ready, put the fava beans in and stir. Add some salt to taste. Then serve.

Now we come to the eggs. Break the eggs and fried them sunny side up. Later, put each egg on top of the serving plates.

For the rest of the garnishing, sautee or cooked them in a pan with olive oil. Make sure that they are not over cooked, or else they might not taste that nice. When done, put them on top of the egg, or just arranged them nicely on the plate.

For more idea on how it will look like.

Have them with baguette, two scoops will be enough to feed a hungry person. And it's good for diet too!
