Here's a simple recipe for a dish called Honey Nahit. Let us begin.
2 cups of chickpeas
2 teaspoons of salt
2 tablespoons of melted fat or butter
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup honey
Wash the chickpeas and soak overnight in water to cover. Drain.
Cover with fresh water; bring to a boil and cook over medium heat on
the stove 1 and a half hours. Drain. Mix the chickpeas, salt,
fat/butter, 1/2 cup water and the honey in a baking dish. Bake in a
350 oven 30 minutes. The results should serve 6 folks.
Then, here's Nahit and rice, which is a bit more complicated.
3/4 cup chickpeas
1/2 cup raw rice
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup of honey
Wash the chickpeas and soak them overnight in water to cover. Then,
cover with fresh water; bring it to a boil and cook over low heat
for 2 hours. Drain.
Stir the rice and salt into the 2 cups boiling water. Cover and cook
over low heat 15 minutes. Turn the undrained rice into a casserole
and stir in the honey and chickpeas. Bake in an oven for 35 minutes.
The results should serve 4-6 folks.
Complete all that, and you should be able to serve up a good meal
