Hummus Recipe - Homemade Hummus recipe

Whenever I travel to Brazil I love to eat in the kilimanjaro restaurant. One of the starters is vegetable with Hummus. I love it .. Chick peas and olive oil is a perfect combo. If you don't believe it you should try it first..The traditional one is made with tahini. But when I do it at home I do it with Roasted Sesame seeds. I also love wrap with hummus.. Hummus is very simple to make. My kids love it with chips.

Cooked Chickpeas / Chana / garbanzo beans - 1.5 cups
Sesame seeds - 3 tablespoon
Lemon juice - 3 tablespoon
Garlic - 2 cloves
Salt to taste
Olive Oil - 2 tablespoon
Red chilli powder - 1/4 teaspoon


Dry roast sesame seeds. Keep it aside. Cook the chickpeas with required salt. Drain water.
Place the garbanzo beans, sesame seeds, lemon juice, salt and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a serving bowl.
Drizzle olive oil over the garbanzo bean mixture. Sprinkle with red chilli powder
