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 with chickpeas.
