Shahan ful

Highslide JS

Shahan ful, simplified to ful, is a dish common in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan and the region, and is generally served for breakfast. Believed to be an import from Sudan, it is made by slowly cooking fava beans in water. Once the beans have softened they are crushed into a coarse paste.

It is often served with chopped green onions, tomatoes, jalapeños, as well as yogurt, feta cheese, olive oil, tesmi, lemon juice, berbere, and cumin. It is typically eaten without the aid of utensils accompanied with a bread roll. It is popular during the Ramadan season and during the various Lents.

It likely bears a relationship to ful medames which is a popular dish of Egypt.
