Why I Love This Recipe
Ful mudammas is a breakfast dish eaten in Egypt. Ful mudammas (fava bean dip) is usually eaten with pita bread, hard-boiled or scrambled eggs, and a cup of hot tea with boiled milk. In Muslim countries, Ful mudammas is often eaten during Ramadan before sunrise so people can fast more easily during the daylight hours.
