I love to eat ful medames or fūl Müdemmis (فول مدمّس).
Ful medames is a very tasty and healthy dish made out of beans.
This dish is actually from Egypt but it is popular in Sudan and Saudi Arabia too.
It is made from fava beans.
We eat ful medames with onion, garlic, tomatoes, olive slices, tahini, lime, olive oil and Arabian flat bread and falafel.
How to cook ful medames:
Cook the fava beans with olive oil and garlic.
When the beans are cooked, mash the beans.
Then, serve the ful.
Add some olive oil before eating our ful.
I also like to eat falafel (فلافل) with ful, so my mother will cook falafel whenever she cooks ful.
Falafel is also a healthy food that originated from Egypt.
Falafel is made from chickpeas.
Ful reminds me of chili con carne because it is a bean dish too.
Last Saturday I woke up at 5 am.
We went to the Sudanese’s Ambassador’s house to fetch Uncle Taj (or Tag).
The house is opposite the ‘castle’ by the lake at Ampang Hilir Lake Garden.
I was going to send Uncle Taj to KLIA in Sepang.
Uncle Taj’s full name is Tag el Din el Sanosy (or Tajuddin when we say in Malay)
Uncle Taj was going to Cairo, Egypt before going back to Khartoum, Sudan.
Uncle Taj is very nice and I like him very much.
I hope I can visit Uncle Taj in Sudan 🙂
I want to visit Uncle Osman, Aunty Yaman and big sister Arwa too.
I miss them very much.
Yesterday I went to Melaka to visit Uncle Khairul Najmi’s mother.
Her name is Opah Asmah Idris.
Uncle Najmi is my father’s good friend.
She had a heart attack on Sunday.
She is now in the CCU ward of Hospital Melaka.
I met Atuk Idris and Aunty Aini at the hospital.
(but we forgot to take photo at the hospital)
