Hummus

                    Hummus is a popular middle eastern dip, it is served with Pita breads and Falafel.
Falafel is such a awesome appetizer when served with this Hummus, Even we can have it with other recipes like bread, carrot sticks, kebabs, koftas, chicken tandoori, tikkas, ...it goes on adding to the list.

Ingredients:

Kabuli Channa - 1 cup
Lemon - 2 tsp
Garlic - 2 cloves
salt to taste
sesame oil - 2 tsp
Curd - 2 tbsp. (thick)
Tahini - 1 tsp

 Method:

Soak the White Channa overnight.
Once it is soaked well, when you rub it with your hand the thin outer layer of the channa will get separated, Removing this layer helps in getting a creamy texture to the recipe.
Pressure cook channa.
Dry roast white sesame seed (you will be getting a pack named Tahini itself) and keep aside
In a mixer add Channa, Tahini, garlic, oil, salt & curd then run the mixer to get the smother paste.
When it is done add the lemon and just run it once.

Note:
You can adjust the consistency by adding required amount off curd to it.
If you prefer this can be served with sprinkling chat masala or chilly powder on it.
