READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Egyptian John

It enhances the flavour of many foods, I live in Egypt and use it often, I always have in the fridge to liven up the taste buds. Ideal condiment for Liver, spaghetti, foul medames (Egyptian fava beans)

Wonderful condiment! Actually I love dipping bread in it and then in dukkah. And I particularly like it on fried potatoes! Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Liquidize everything together (traditionally should be crushed with a mortar and pestle), not too much to keep some pieces in the liquid.
  2. Put into a ½ litre mineral water bottle, add the lemon juice and top up the remaining space with cold water, shake it’s ready!
