  • 2 cups of fresh or frozen fava beans
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of fresh dill, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of water


  • Start by heating the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté until they are golden brown.

  • Add the fava beans to the saucepan and sauté for a few minutes until they are lightly browned.
  • Add the chopped dill, salt, and pepper to the saucepan and sauté for another minute.
