Baingan Bhartha Hummus - Roasted spicy Aubergine Hummus #middleeastern #dip #delicious

Baingan Bhartha Hummus, healthy and hearty dip made with roasted aubergine and Chickpeas, these are two ingredients, I would never ever get bored with because I do make plenty different kind of dishes with it , they makes me comfortable and gives me energy, keeps me happy.

Because every food is better when it's simple and delicious, also because every food is better when it's infused with Aubergine. Oh, and let's not forget every food is better when it's Hummus !
To top it off, it's it's quick fix recipe and this recipe is a keeper as gorgeous and tasty Bhartha has enhanced this dip.

I was looking for a way to use up some of my left over Baingan Bhartha, I would've have ate it in the next day at lunch time but was due to go out certainly not after having very strong flavoured food.

I've seen many roasted eggplant hummus recipes on the net, but there isn't Baingan Bhartha hummus, so taken inspiration from those recipes and here I am with Baingan Bhartha Hummus, also we really enjoy equally other flavoured too , those hummus recipes are here If you have never tried Roasted eggplant or aubergine hummus, new experience and taste, you won't regret. Bit of advantage of this recipe is that you don't have to start from scratch, whenever you prepare Baingan Bhartha, just make little more and I hope you give this a whirl because this one is YUMMUS :)

An amazing subtle smoky flavoured, earthy, creamy and mildly spiced  hummus, a taste never to forget in a hurry, Just grab your favourite crackers and veggies and dip away !
Oh and not to tell anyone that this dip can be used as spread and sandwich filling too :)
