Hummus is a dip or thick chutney that is made from boiled and blended chickpeas (Chole) with lemon juice, olive oil and spices. One can have it with Pita bread, Falafel or any choice of Papad. There are numerous variations of Hummus. This one is the basic one. Essentially its a popular Mediterranean cuisine and now quite known in Indian cafeterias. I had it first time years back and I just couldnt understand its taste. My husband became a big fan of it and he sent me a recipe link of how several hummus can be made. I read it and didnt try it. A few years ago when I again tried it and understood its flavour, I tried it and it turned out to be great. Since then, whenever my kitchen is whistling with Choley (Chickpeas), my husband would gently remind me to make Hummus. This one is my version of hummus. Rich in protein and fibre, its a good in-between meal snack option. Generally its not very spicy but my version has green chilli or red chilli or both at times as my husband like it tangy and spicy. We have it with Papad and sometimes Namak Pare. You can make it mildly spicy by reducing chillies and can have it with your choice of bread. Remember to share your experience with me.
Hope you enjoy it !!
