Hummus fatteh, or fattet hummus, is a vegetarian savory chickpea bread pudding. It's a delicious mess of fried bread, garlicky yogurt, and some other garnishes.



  • 600g yogurt (around 2 1/2 cups)
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 4 pita breads 
  • 1/4 cup +2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 5 cloves smashed garlic
  • 1 tbsp cumin  
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 2 tbsp ghee or olive oil
  • pomegranate, parsley, and pine nuts for garnish


  • Start by cutting the bread into little squares. Fry until golden, and set aside.
  • Mix the yogurt with the smashed garlic, tahini, lemon juice, cumin, and salt.
  • Assemble the layers in your serving dish: starting with the fried pita bread, then the chickpeas, then the yogurt mixture, and garnish with pomegranates, more chickpeas, and parsley.
  • Fry the pine nuts in ghee or olive oil and pour on top. Serve immediately.


  • Don't make more than you'll eat; leftovers don't keep well.
  • Pour the nuts and the ghee they were frying in at the end.
