A greek Fava for a glowing Skin!

When I was travelling in Greece, I was not searching for Greek Gods, rather I was searching for Greek goddesses. And I found. Not just one or two, so many of them, so beautiful and such a great complexion.  One of the secrets that they revealed was the consumption of Fava. A Fava is just loads of split yellow peas, cooked and smashed into a fine paste. Usually eaten with Pita breads, with a liberal topping of onions and olive oil.

Here goes the recipe for the Fava, that I made using Indian ingredients:


A cup of yellow split peas
4 gloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of vinegar
Pepper as desired
Spring onions - half a cup

In a large pan, boil together, the yellow split peas, garlic and spring onions with a good sprinkle of olive oil. Once boiled nicely, let it to cool. Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor along with lemon juice. Serve with raw onions cut finely and a good drizzle of olive oil.
