Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Hummus is one of the most popular middle eastern dips, served with fresh or toasted pita bread. High in iron and vitamin C, it also has significant amounts of folate and vitamin B6. The chickpeas are a good source of protein and dietary fiber; the tahini consists mostly of sesame seeds, which are an excellent source of calcium and amino acid methionine, complementing the proteins in the chickpeas. Depending on the recipe, hummus carries varying amounts of monounsaturated fat. Lemon juice gives the blend a tart balance while garlic adds its own pungent punch and is even better with spices. Hence, hummus makes a great deal for a snack or appetizer. 

INGREDIENTS

  • Chickpeas (kabuli chana) - 3 tablespoons
  • Garlic - 1 clove
  • Salt - to taste
  • Tahini - 1 tablespoon
  • Olive oil - 1 teaspoon
  • Lemon juice - few drops

DIRECTIONS
Step 1 Soak the chickpeas overnight. Boil in fresh water till soft. Cool and remove the skin and put them in a mixer grinder. Step 2 Add garlic, salt and tahini, olive oil and lemon juice and continue to blend till absolutely smooth.  Step 3 Chill in the refrigerator.
