Tharid Made with Garbanzo Water, Chicken, Cheese and Olives; It is Good for Him Who Fasts. Cover garbanzos with water and boil them vigorously until their strength enters the water. Then strain it and toss out the garbanzos. Keep the water and return it to the pot and add three fat pigeons old enough to fly, clean and whole, with a third of a ratl of oil, pepper, coriander seed and a piece of onion, a little cumin and some salt. When the pigeons are ready, take the pot to the hot ashes and break in five eggs. Then crumble enough clean white bread and moisten it with the sauce until it soaks it up. Put the pigeons in the middle and around the outside arrange the eggs, the olives and the fresh cheese. Serve it and it is good for [breaking] the [Ramadan] fast.
