This healthy and easy hummus recipe is sure for this summer which is prepared with real mango pieces and to add some fiery kick there is a fresh red chilli thrown in it too. This fruity hummus can be eaten with fruit as a healthy snack or just indulge in with some tortilla crisps.





We are a sport loving family and never miss the chance to enjoy a good match either on telly or sometimes going to watch it live in the stadium. We are currently enjoying the Football world cup 2018 in Russia. We are also looking forward to Cricket matches between India and England. It seems like the Indian team has brought the Indian summer with them! During these sporting events, we just want to be in front of the tv with snacks in hand!

I first came across various flavours of houmous whilst I was wandering through the world famous Naschmarkt in Vienna, Austria. There were rows and rows of different houmous recipes that we were spoilt for choice! Since then, I have been meaning to recreate some of those recipes back home.

Recently, there has been a surge of fruit and vegetables in the shops. Really good quality produces at much lower prices. One such fruit has been mangoes. It's rare that you get such sweet mangoes available in UK supermarkets! So naturally, I bought more than I could eat! I had planned to make a houmous dip any for the sports anyway, so thought it would be a good idea to try out mango houmous instead!

Normally, I like to stick to traditional recipes, but when you've eaten a lot of the traditional recipe, it feels good to venture out a bit more. Plain houmous has become a staple in our household so a little change up here and there is exciting.

And am I glad that I made that change! The houmous felt so light and fresh. You could really taste the mango flavours but it still didn't overpower the meal that we ate it with. We added it to Arabic bread, falafel, salad and other dips. A match made in heaven! I spent less time in the kitchen and still got the same fabulous and flavour-some results. It's a WIN-WIN situation don't you think? ;)

Notes:-
I have used fresh mango pieces but you can use mango puree if you can't find fresh mango.
I did not use any mint in this recipe, garnished the recipe with it only for photographic purpose as I was run out of fresh coriander :)
