Hummus is an easy and healthy chickpea dip, authentically served with pita bread. I had this first in Salivation restaurant. I just loved it. Had long time wish to try this, but always Tahini was the thing that made me postpone trying. But learnt Tahini is nothing but ground roasted white sesame seeds with few ingredients, so I thought I would replace tahini with roasted sesame in the recipe. Somehow I could relate hummus to paruppu thogayal. May be coz of the lentil and garlic. So here is my take on the hummus. Easy to try at your home.
Transfer the hummus to serving bowl, make swirls and drizzle olive oil on top. Sprinkle some chilli powder on top and serve with fresh vegetables or pitta bread. I served with capsicum strips, cucumber strips, baby carrots, salt biscuits, maska chaska biscuits. Cherry tomatoes can also be served. Dip generously in hummus and enjoy the healthy snack.
