An Egyptian favourite, hamud has a versatile nature. Although generally served as a sauce for rice, it often appears twice in the same meal, first as a soup, and then again as the sauce. It is basically a chicken soup with celery, strongly flavoured with lemon and garlic, but other green vegetables find their place in it when they are at hand.
