This recipe is for bachelors from some bachelors of Dubai. :) Ful Medames is one of the national dish of Egypt which always has a special place in our dinner menu with khubz, especially on the days when I do not cook. This is often prepared by my husband, but I have given little changes to his version, since I always wanted to keep the taste of Arabic spices in the dish. If you don't have the ingredients like za'atar and basil leaves just make it with the remaining ingredients.
Ful medames 2 cans of 375 gm
green chillies 2
pepper powder 2 tsps
basil leaves dried 1 tsp
zaatar 2 tsps
