Minty Hummus (Mediterranean Style)

           This is a traditional Middle Eastern dip and spread, made of boiled chickpeas and blended with other ingredients. A very healthy and nutritious dip, which is had with Arabic bread. It can also be relished with veggie crudites or chips. A little bit of garlic and sesame seeds gives this dip a very unusual taste and flavour. There is nothing like having a creamy, homemade hummus for a quick snack.

                      3/4 cup kabuli chana (chickpeas), soaked overnight                                                                 3 tbsp. olive oil                                                                                                                        2 garlic cloves                                                                                                                            
                       handful of mint leaves                                                                                                               1 tsp. lime juice                                                                                
                       1/4 cup sesame seeds                                                                                                                 salt to taste                                                                                                                             1 tbsp. olive oil, red chili powder / sumac powder, mint leaves &  boiled                                kabuli  chana to garnish  

Pressure cook the kabuli chana for 5 whistles. When cool, blend with the rest of the ingredients, (except lime juice), till smooth. When done, add the lime juice and serve, garnished with more olive oil, mint leaves, red chili powder / sumac powder and few boiled kabuli chana.
