- Soak the kabuli chana in enough water overnight.
- Next day, drain the chana, add the salt and ½ cup of water and pressure cook for 6 to 7 whistles or till they are overcooked.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Cool and strain using a strainer. Keep the kabuli chana and water aside separately.
- Combine the garlic, sesame seeds, lemon juice, curds, oil, salt and ¼ cup of the strained water and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste.
- Add the cooked kabuli chana and blend again till smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add 2 to 3 tbsp of the strained water and blend well.
- Transfer this mixture to a bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Just before serving, garnish the hummus with parsley sprig and olive oil and serve chilled with bread sticks.
