Hummus, the wonderful gift from the Middle East keeps on giving with its multitude of benefits. Brimming with the wholesome goodness of chickpeas, sesame paste, lemon juice and garlic, there are a plethora of ways this scrumptious and delicious dip can be used in dishes.
Typically, hummus is served on a large plate and dribbled liberally with olive oil and sometimes even toppings. It is also accompanied by fresh pita, tomato, onion, cucumber salad and falafel. At homes, people usually pair with carrots, celery, beetroot, cucumber slices or just toasted bread as a spread.Now, with Indian food as well, hummus can be a great accompaniment and elevate the fare a lot.
Modify boring dishes
Rotis are a great base to use this dip, to make a boring dish interesting, simply spread some hummus on the roti and layer with the sabzi. For some garnish, sprinkle freshly chopped coriander over it and roll it. Cut the roll in bite-sized pieces and it’s a guarrantee the lunch box will come empty and licked clean.
Regular breads go really well with hummus, as do crackers. You can pair your maska chaskas and Monaco and make it fun, by adding toppings like finely chopped tomatoes, onions. Spread the bread and biscuits with hummus and watch these nibbly bites be finished in seconds.
If you have extra pao lying around, use hummus to make a quick snack. Layer the hummus over the pao and toppings of your choice like sev, coriander, tomatoes, and onions.
Have steamed potatoes lying around from that aloo paratha mix? Use it along with hummus to make mashed potatoes, albeit healthy style. Ditch the sour cream, add oodles of flavoured hummus into it, a pinch of salt and some butter. Use this mash with chicken, kebabs, and pepper them with some Italian seasoning. #KhabarLive
