Still, there are many who are unaware of what Hummus is.? So let’s get started on what this is all about. It is a classic delicious dip/spread of the Middle East and the Mediterranean regions. A blend of simple ingredients like chickpeas, garlic, lime and tahini, but comes out to be amazing in taste, nutrition and a healthy accompaniment. Since the time it is available in other countries, people have drooled over this creamy dip which is satisfying and packed with protein (plant-based). There are many versions in the market with different flavours and ingredients, but to increase shelf life preservatives are added. The ones which we make are hand-made in small batches freshly made upon order.
Let us explore the <a href="https://www.kneed.co/blogs/news/authentic-hummus-recipe">Ingredients</a>
CHICKPEAS - these come from the family of legumes which are called with different names and variations in parts of the world. Commonly in India, these are referred to as kabuli chana or Bengal gram. These are soaked overnight and boiled to make a smooth paste-like texture. These come in canned packs which give a different taste of chemicals and preservatives which do not go with the authentic taste.
Tahini paste – this is a paste made from sesame seeds. Firstly the seeds are roasted and ground with oil to make them into a paste. The role of tahini paste in hummus is to add a nutty flavour and to boost the various nutritional values provided by sesame.
Lime juice – lemons are freshly squeezed for giving a fresh and tangy taste to the hummus. Lime juice also acts as a natural preservative to increase the shelf life.
Garlic- these are added raw or roasted in the hummus to give the pungent flavour with antioxidants properties to make it healthier.
Olive oil – extra virgin olive is used for providing a better smooth texture and umami flavour in the hummus.
