الفول، حبيب الشعب 🇸🇩
Ful (fava or broad beans) is one of the staple foods of Sudan. It’s always the main dish of the breakfast/ brunch siniya but can also be eaten throughout the day.
Ful is soaked for about a day and then cooked in a pressure cooker. Normally, it is seasoned with salt, ground coriander (shamar) and onions and then topped with various toppings with the main topping combo being feta cheese and sesame oil. Here, I’ve kept mine basic and seasoned it with salt, grated garlic, ground coriander and a squeeze of lemon juice and then topped it with sesame oil, tomatoes and boiled egg. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
For me, ful isn’t ful without a good drizzle of sesame oil (Zeit Simsim) and what better than being able to source a Sudanese brand of sesame oil right here in Birmingham! 🇬🇧 What’s great about ful is that the broad bean base is basically vegan and this dish can be adapted to being vegan by eliminating the optional cheese and egg toppings!
