The most popular Egyptian breakfast ever "Foul Medames." Wheather a shop or a street cart, you can find it in every corner and in each street. Crowded and long waiting lines, they say it tastes better than homemade Foul Medames. Over the years I took the challenge with myself and practised different recipes, and compared it to street Foul. Until I reach this final result, homemade Foul Medames tastes as better as street Foul. So go on and try for yourself
