Yesterday, I tried to made Hummus, a famous Arab side dish. You can either eat it with pita bread or eat it on its own. If you want to try it, here's the recipe to share:
The ingredients needed are:
1- 500gm of chickpeas. Soak it for about 12 hours. The best time is actually 24 hours. You may also use canned chickpeas.
2. 2-3 cloves of garlic. Slice them.
3. About 1/4 cups of lemon juice.
4. 1/4 cups of tahina or sesame paste. You can get it at shops that sell Arab food condiments and ingredients.
5. Dash of salt.
1-Cook the chickpeas until tender for about 1 hour.
2- Combine it with with other ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
The end product...Humus. You may add olives with olive oil. Or sprinkle it with some paprika. In this recipe, I use chili flakes instead.
Enjoy it with a bismillah =)
