This becomes a kind of paste and can be eaten as is. A friend of mine usually makes some for work and we spread it on a type of Mediterranean Bread we get here in NYC that is fat-free. It is called Shepards Bread made by Damascus Bakeries. It is very flat and thin and the Ghana Bhajee can be used as a filler
