I have grown eating Hummus all my life.Teamed with plain khubbus, julienne d vegetable sticks or sandwiched in a Shawarma, the taste of it has now lingered onto Satish's (hubby) palate as well.


1 cup of chickpeas (soaked overnight and boiled)
1/4 cup liquid from boiled chickpeas
3-5 tablespoons lemon juice (depending on taste)
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini/ sesame seed paste (you could totally do without this as well)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil

Blend all the ingredients except olive oil until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Transfer to a bowl and create a depression in the center and tip in the olive oil. Serve with khubbus/ pita bread or even Chapathy.


  1. Pl do not do away with Tahini. That is what lends that distinct flavour to this dish.

  2. Just love to have this with pitta bread..yummm. Nice click.

    Thanks for the award..will post it soon.

  3. I am yet to try making this..Recipe sounds great an that looks yummy too...

  4. I just adore hummus. Love homemade too!

  5. Hummus is all time favorite with everyone in my household and when i made at home i tell you i was as thrilled a like a three year old who has just got a new toy!
