Hummus

Ofcourse you can't have Pita crisps sans the famous Mediterranean dips. And making Hummus is the easiest dip you can ever make! All you need is a few ingredients and you're ready with your amazingly healthy and tasty dip that has a great texture. You can eat it with salads, make paninis with it, make sandwiches, use it as a spread and what you like with it because you are going to love this!



Have you checked out my Basil Hummus yet?! Gorgeous green beauty spiked with the flavour of fresh basil. 



I used that green hummus to dress up my Pink Beetroot Falafels. Check them out! Its sure to please all your senses! 




For the Hummus you'll need



Yes this is it!

2 cups Garbanzo beans/white chickpeas/ kabulli chana soaked overnight or if using from a can, use directly after washing
5-6 small cloves of Garlic
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbspn Tahini paste (soak sesame seeds in water for an hour, add olive oil and blend till emulsified)
Salt to taste
1-2 tbsp curd/ yogurt
Olive oil to garnish
Paprika to garnish
Pinch of love

To make


Take lemon juice and garlic in the blender first and liquidify cause we don't want any chunks of garlic in the Hummus. Add the garbanzo beans, salt, tahini paste and blend just till it almost reaches a paste. I like it a little chunky. Taste for seasoning. Adjust accordingly. Incase the hummus looks dry, this is when you add curd and blend again. Transfer it to the serving bowl. Pour some Olive oil before serving. Garnish with Paprika and serve with love! oh btw, did you know that hummus simply means chickpeas or garbanzo beans in the middle east? :)
