Shahan Ful

Shahan ful presented alongside olive oil, berbere, various vegetables, and a roll of bread.

Shahan ful, simplified to ful, is a dish common in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan, and other parts of the Horn of Africa, which 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, and hot green peppers, as well as yogurt, feta cheese, olive oil, tesmi, berbere, lemon juice, cumin, and chili pepper. 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.

The dish is similar to ful medames, a popular dish of Egypt.
