A spot of ‘bigilla’ (traditional dried beans mash with garlic) accompanied by freshly baked bread just out of the oven – who can resist it?
The preparation is simple enough and does not require any genius qualities. However, it is one of the richest and most traditional dishes in the Maltese kitchen.
In days of yore it used to be sold around the streets in a small donkey-drawn cart and later from touring vans. However, for those who love to potter around the kitchen it is perfectly simple to make.
What ingredients are needed? Basically these are dried broad beans, garlic, parsley, chilli pepper and olive oil.
