Hummus Recipe - How to Make Hummus from Scratch

This is one of my favourite dip, it has a beautiful sesame flavour from the tahini. It is creamy, garlicky, tangy all in one. Perfect to dip crisp cut veggies as well, it makes a great spread for any sandwiches or shawarma as well..Can be had as a dipping sauce for grilled chicken as well..

  2. how long it can be stored?

  3. @Fathimayou can keep this in fridge for a week

  4. @Ajithathank you..will try that next time.


  5. Do we need to soak the channa overnight? Or can we boil it without soaking?

  6. @Anonymoussoaking helps in boiling faster..So soaking is best

  7. Hi Aarthi! Can we freeze this in small portions and use?
