What is it?

Foul muddamas, also known as ful, are a type of canned Egyptian fava bean called ful hammam. They are brown, smaller and rounder than the green, fresh fava beans that we are most familiar with. Foul mudammas are named for their integral role in their namesake dish, ful mudammas, which is a spiced fava bean stew made with onions, tomatoes and red lentils, which is often served with tahini and parsley. The dish is a staple in Egyptian and Middle Eastern culinary tradition.
