Hummus

 

 

Hummus is a yet another popular dish from the Middle East, usually served with Pita Bread.

D LOVES Hummus. So, when he requesed for it, I promised to make it the next day as the chick peas had to be soaked. Having made Tahini, there wasn’t much preparations to be done, except soaking the chick peas.
