CHAAT MASALA HUMMUS


What is Chaat Masala

Chaat masala is an Indian spice mix that adds a tangy, zingy and salty flavour. It is usually sprinkled on top of the food or mixed through the final product.


How to make perfect homemade hummus


There are four key ingredients which make any hummus recipe so tasty and delicious: chickpeas, tahini (sesame paste) fresh garlic and lemon juice.

To achieve the best results, the chickpeas should be dried rather than canned. Chickpeas are best soaked overnight and then pressure cooked until soft.

To make the creamiest hummus, take the skin off the chickpeas by placing the cooked chickpeas in hot water and then adding a little baking soda.

When left to soak for a little while, drain the chickpeas in cold water and the skin should rub off.

We like to sometimes add a little hot water when blending which also makes the hummus really smooth.


Is hummus good for you


Hummus is high in plant-based protein due to the chickpeas and also high in unsaturated fat (the good fat) from olive oil and tahini. It is low in carbohydrates, making it low GI also.

What to serve with hummus


Hummus and pita is an absolute classic! We love this for weekend breakfasts with extra virgin olive oil and a selection of spice mixes such as zaatar, sumac, and dukkha.

Why not also eat with low-fat homemade falafels, like Roasted Beetroot Falafel or Pumpkin Falafel
