Imagine packing a nice, satiating dip in your kids’ snack box. Along with something refreshing like cucumber or carrot sticks, it would transform their break into a very jolly and relaxing time. The Spinach Hummus is the perfect choice for this, because it is colourful, healthy and filling too as it is loaded with chickpeas and spinach. Apt ingredients like green chilli paste, curds and lemon juice impart an exciting flavour and perfect texture to the hummus, which stays fresh in the tiffin box for around 5 hours. To save time, you can cook the chickpeas the previous night itself. If doing so, add a little more water when blending the chickpeas the next morning. Also pack some Chatpata Popcorn ( Tiffin Treats) in another tiffin for a perfect short break combo.

hummus, is as though my favourite.. adding spinach to this is a very super variation.. Good for kids in the tiffin, as it completes the requirement of protein... The colour is also very appetizing.. With some red chilli sprinkled on it.
