After countless times of humiliation asking girls for different recipes its time to pay back,feel equal, YES ,Thanks to my dear friend Rawia, I will finally give a recipie to someone else !today I even the score [ Yes one recipi on my part would do,I'm a cooking sensation-less kind of guy ]
* 3o2bal 3nd el ba2yeen *
So here is how I do my fool , my recipe might not sound recipe-ish enough , but its common sense ,easy and simple ,because my brain can't really understand all the little additions girls like to do .we're doing the simple foot,the one that smells like home ,but necessarily taste like it :D here is how its done :
1) Bten2a3e el fool ,half a mug or a bit more will be enough for one good plate , i suggest you leave it to soak over night !thats what i do .we don't want any surprises .
2) The next day ,betjeebe tanjara feeha water ,w bte'3sele el fool and then you add it to the water until the water start boiling, turn it down ,5alle 3amahlo ,and let it take as long as it wish to ,until its mushy mushy . you'll notice that the color of the water is turning brown ,don't freak out, after many attempts to wash it ,i discovered that it give a good taste ,we'll add it later.
3) halla hoooon bedha m3allem : you take out a portion of the fool ,put it in a "little" deep pan ,add to it a little bit of it's water ,put it on the stove (real low) and start mashing it !mash and stir mash and stir mash and stir ,it shouldn't be so solid, wala kteer liquid-ish ,if you felt it needed water add a bit .. u know !
4) add to it a salt ,and half spoon of T-heeneh ,Tahina wutever you call it ,and keep stirring ,it'll come together a little bit ,you might want to add a bit of water ,depends .
5) now myy contribution to the dish : take it off the stove ,and pour the whole thing in the blender ,squeez a bit of lemon ,maybe salt ,you can taste it now most people leave it at there and eat it ,and blind ,blind it until its as soft as you'd like it to be ,put it again in the pan if u felt its too thick ,and add some water,stir a bit .and thaaats it.
