Chickpeas soup , chickpeas drink , Hummus elsham , Halabesa الحلبسه . حمص الشام

I really don’t know what can I call it exactly ! It’s chickpeas swimming in a delicious spiced soup. You enjoy eating the chickpeas as much as you enjoy drinking its soup. It’s one of the few official winter drinks that are sold in every corner in Egypt specially Cafes , clubs , street carts & of course in every house !
It’s so easy to make , you can add your favourite spices to it , and enjoy your personal taste .
It’s made of dried chickpeas that you have to soak overnight in water ,so as to make it easier in digestion & to take less cooking time. I personally use the precooked chickpeas sold in cans & the outcome is always the same ! using the ready made chickpeas in cans makes it ready in nearly 15 minutes. Just boil in water with tomatoes, onion, garlic, spices and it’s done !

This recipe was featured in my beautiful freind Nisreen's website .
Here’s the very easy recipe that kids too love .

Butter Tilapia . السمك البلطي بالزبدة

Tilapia is one of my favourite Fish ! I'm always used to eating it deep fried in Oil & Coated with a thin layer of Flour (after marinading it for sometime) , This is how we usually cook Tilapia in Egypt ! And since I'm a very busy mom & I always have no time, So I decided to fry it in Butter with some Salt & Pepper ,without wasting a long time in the marinade . I used a good non-stick pan , as Tilapia is a very fragile fish & choose a nice relatively thick Tilapia cut to use & it was really so delicious, I felt the real fish taste in my mouth , The recipe I used before was perfect, but I liked this way of cooking more as the taste of Fish was not masked by other the flour & frying process .
