As the doodle shows, the farad is made of chickpeas plus herbs, spices and onions, and is usually eaten with a pittcake. It is widely believed that it was invented by the Egyptians about 1,000 years ago, and they used broad beans for their so-called "ta"
When the dish spread eastward to the Levant region of the Eastern Mediterranean, fava beans were replaced by chickpeas as the main ingredient, and the Arabic name of Levantine, Faraffe, was obtained. There are other theories that it was invented by Arabs or Turks. Farafaye spread to North America in the 1970s, mainly in Arab, Coptic and Jewish communities, but later became a common street food. In recent decades, it has also been popular in Germany.
This is not the first time that Google has put food in the graffiti spotlight. In 2017, Google made slides to pay tribute to Thai fried noodles. Google launched an interactive map on July 4 last year, highlighting the cuisine of all parts of the country.
Farafel based on chickpea is prepared in many ways, rich in protein, complex carbohydrates and fibers, so it is very popular in vegetarianism.
