This lebanese soup is delicious! the special baharat masala gives a nice edge to the soup and complements the creaminess of the chickpea rather well. Throw in garlic, onion, tomatoes and potatoes with a sprinkling of lemon juice, the flavours come together beautifully. This soup tastes great when chunky, but you could blend it into a creamy, thick soup as well. Serve bubbling hot with bread sticks!
