Hummus are traditional dip from the Middle Eastern regions, where it is served along with Arabic breads and / or grilled meat. It can also be relished as a spread on toasted bread and parathas. Healthy and nutritious, they can be had with veggie crudites or chips for a light snack.
I try out Hummus with variety of Ingredients. In my website, you will find, Coriander Hummus, Mint Hummus, Rajma Hummus and the Original Chickpea Hummus. Today I bring to you yet another type of Hummus prepared with Dry fruits like almonds, cashewnuts and peanuts for a different nutty flavour. Trying it out for the first time, it turned out super delicious which I had along with some cucumber strips.
The presence of the dry fruits, garlic and sesame seeds enhances the flavour and taste and gives a creamy texture to the end product. So this simple and easy homemade Hummus are a quick fix when you have hunger pangs and time is a constraint.
