    Can anyone help? Egyptgirl?

    It looks like chickpeas topped with browned minced meat and slivered toated almonds.

    I've only ever seen my Mum make this (when I was about 14) - never done it myself. From memory...
    Boil some chickpeas until tender. Fry some pitta bread in olive oil until really crisp. Make a sauce from yoghurt, tahini, lemon juice (I seem to remember Mum adding some of the water she boiled the chickpeas in but not totally sure). Add roughly half of the sauce to the fried pitta and combine. Then add the chickpeas to the rest of the sauce and layer on top. Fry some nuts in the oil you used for the pitta and add it to the dish.
    I remember Mum frying some aubergine add putting it on top but she so rarely had access to meat that I don't know if its supposed to go in the dish or not! Does that help, Lapin?

    I had a reply from the Palestinian folklore on facebook.

    "Fatet Homos*2 cups of already soaked and
    boiled chickpeas, until tender. You may use two cans of chickpeas, boil
    the water in the cans and add two more cups water when boiling them
    *3 or 4 loaves of pita bread, white or wheat flour

    *2 cups chickpeas boiled water
    *1 cup yogurt
    *3 tablespoon lemon juice
    *½ cup Tehini
    *
    One clove of crushed garlic- you may use more according to your taste.
    You may used hot chill pepper if you like, it is optional
    *Fried Pine nuts or Almonds for garnish. You may use finely cut parsley to garnish with
    Directions:
    -Bake
    the pita bread chips until golden in color. Place in a deep dish You
    can still fry the bread in oil until golden brown but this will make
    your recipe higher in calories and fat.
    -To make the sauce, add
    yogurt, Tahini, Lemon juice, Salt, Garlic and the Hot chili peppers if
    you are using them. Mix to a smooth finish. You do not need an electric
    mixer for this step, a whisk or a fork would do

    -Heat up the chickpeas with the water until boiling
    To assemble:

    - Put the bread chips in a deep dish
    - Pour half of the amount of the Tahini and yogurt sauce , mix well
    - Add two cups of chickpeas with some of the water, add the rest of the Tahini sauce and mix well
    -Smooth
    up the top. Garnish with chopped parsley and / or fried pine nuts or
    fried almonds with the oil that was used for frying
    Enjoy it"
