HOMEMADE HUMMUS

 

 

It was for a long time that I wanted to post this Hummus recipe.Hummus is an egyptian dip or spread made from chickpeas,tahini,garlic and spices.It is an ancient food dip made in olden times dating back to many years and it has its own variations.I wanted to post it with a little homemade style recipe and was somewhat successful too since daughter dear raised her thumbs up.I also learnt that it is made in some countries like Lebanon,Morocco etc.Did you people know that there is one annual event celebrated on third Thursday every year?Sounds really intresting to me.This protein filled aromatic dip makes the dish which is eaten with it more tastier and more craved for.As a matter of fact this was throughly enjoyed by all at home.I first heard of this recipe from TLC TV channel and saw it in one of their shows.Now over to the recipe..
