Fatteh is a popular Middle Eastern dish originating from Syria, which traditionally consists of toasted flatbread, chickpeas and yoghurt. I was first introduced to it at a local Lebanese restaurant and it has been one of my top favourite Middle Eastern dish ever since.
There are many variations of this dish, and this is my own modified version of the recipe. You can use fresh chickpeas instead of canned ones if you prefer, but I used canned ones for the purpose of convenience. It is an easy dish to prepare, which can be ready in a matter of minutes. It is usually served for breakfast, or as an appetizer.
