This is an easy, simple Indian style hummus recipe to follow for Indians, as we always have chickpeas in our kitchen. Hummus has a unique flavour of chickpea, olive oil and parsley. Very healthy to eat Indian style hummus with cucumbers or carrots and great for weight loss and Endurance Athletes. Notes on hummus Lebanese dip. 1. overcooked chickpeas work great too. If you want the chickpeas to go soft, you can add a pinch of cooking soda while pressure cooking so that the chickpeas cook properly. 2. Wait for the pressure to drop naturally before opening it. If you open it in a haste, the chickpeas will not have cooked properly. 3. Drain the kabuli chana. Tip: Keep aside some cooking water of the chickpeas to add to the blender if required. This liquid will give a smooth consistency to the hummus. 4. Finally add curd to the mixer. This might seem unusual but a few middle-eastern countries replace tahini with yogurt in their hummus for a tangier taste. If you want, you can avoid the curd and put tahini instead. Hummus, the famous traditional Lebanese spread, has a creamy chickpea texture. It tastes fantastic when served as apart of a mezze platter with Pita Bread or vegetables.
