I'm Egyptian, &foul modammas is authentically Egyptian. That recipe is overwhelming &I can make 3 different recipes from those ingredients! Your Syrian friend might have made that up, it's ok but it shouldn't be called foul modammas!
if u like the ingredients of this recipe, just mash the beans up with a fork before adding the rest of ingredients. NO Blender!
1*Egyptian foul modammas is simply mashing the contents of the can (with or w/out its liquid, depending on preference) mash it lightly with adding lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, little dry coriander, salt &pepper.
2*Another dish u do the same with adding some tahini (that's the Alexandrian version).
3*another version add cucumber, onion &tomato chopped very small &mixed.
all the above 3 recipes are served in room temperature.
4*another dish served warm is sautee in a Tbsp of oil 2 cloves of garlic splash with diced tomato then add the beans &the same spices but no lemon!(this one is called foul bel ta'aleya)
In our mums group we are 6 nationalities & they all love it with all the different recipes!
you can also serve it beside eggs for a filling brunch!
