This is a dish you won't find in most restaurants. It's a light vegetarian tomato soup that has been used to boil chickpeas. It's served in a glass with the chickpeas in the bottom of the glass, some lemon to squeeze into it and powdered hot pepper to add if you are into spice. Wonderful on a winter afternoon, light but filling. It's usually sold in koshari shops and often served in plastic bags with a straw.
