Ingredients for Caramelized Onion Hummus Recipe :
Chickpeas / Chana (Kabuli) :
They have a nutty, satisfying flavour and a slightly grainy texture that contrasts nicely with the other ingredients. Chickpeas, like other legumes, are grown in tropical or subtropical climates and come from plants with pods.
Garlic has a distinct, pungent flavour that, when raw, borders on spicy and, when cooked, borders on nutty. Sulfur compounds, such as diallyl disulfide, contribute to the mustard-like flavour profile. It loses its acrid raw flavour when dried and crushed into garlic powder, making it ideal for seasoning dishes.
Onions are considered a basic ingredient or the foundation of Indian cooking and are used to make any gravy, curry, or bhuna dish. The flavour and aroma of onion transforms any ordinary dish into a mouthwatering and delectable one.
