  • 1 cup – Chickpeas
  • 4-5 – Cloves of garlic
  • Salt, to taste
  • 8 tbsp – Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp – Lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp – Sesame seeds


*Rinse the chickpeas and boil them for 10 minutes. This will soften them, and help enhance the texture of the hummus. Transfer to a bowl.

*Meanwhile, finely ground the sesame seeds along with olive oil. Your tahini sauce is ready! (You can skip this step because hummus can be made without tahini sauce too.)

*Now grind the boiled chickpeas along with garlic and lemon juice and olive oil (at least 5-6 tbsp) into a smooth paste.

*Once done, transfer it to a bowl and garnish with some lemon juice and sprinkle some red paprika powder.

*Enjoy it with toasted or pita bread.
