Red Pepper Hummus Recipe | Tahini Recipe | Hummus With Tahini Recipe

    Hummus  dip from the middle east- that's all i know.When i googled i got to know more details.Here are some i read in wikipedia.'Hummus' in Arabic means chickpea Yes!!  we are calling only the main ingredient  also called garbanzo/chana.The complete name of the spread in Arabic     is hummus bi tahina.It's an Egyptian food then became popular all over middle east.

    Even though the main ingredient is Channa there are many more flavors that makes the hummus most delicious.The First one is tahini ,Tahini is a paste made of sesame seeds .This paste adds a subtle flavor  to the dip where second one garlic adds a little spice, red pepper gives a little sweetness and lime gives the sourness this dip needs.

       Usually people add canned garbanzo bean for making  quick hummus.I prefer doing it from scratch and not to buy canned items.I soaked and pressure cooked the garbanzo bean and blended with other ingredients to make the most favorite and protein rich hummus bi tahina.
     Because we use the dry ones, it has to be cooked until mushy .Then it is easy to blend to a puree.I made them in a short notice ,so got less time to cook.I added more oil whenever there is a need of liquid.I added some water too ,because i felt i am adding more calorie by adding more oil.Finally i got a, not fine not so chunky hummus which we liked  a lot.
      I roasted the red pepper,garlic and jeera in a pan on stove top.You can also directly roast the pepper on the gas .Use jeera powder if you have some,instead of whole cumin.
If you are interested in more dip check guacamole (made with avocado),strawberry salsa ,creamy avocado,pineapple salsa.
