Classic hummus recipe that is ready in just 10 minutes!
Welcome back to our blog with another easy recipe for you guys. After having received so much love for the super easy recipe for delicious beetroot hummus – which by the way comes with a video as well, we decide to try more dips and easy snack recipes for you guys.

Anyway, coming back to this recipe for classic hummus – it really is the simplest recipe you would come across. Made with homemade tahini (which is just two steps) this hummus recipe is ready in just fifteen minutes and you only need a few basic ingredients to prepare this.
You start by preparing the tahini paste by simply blending together toasted sesame seeds and water. The toasted sesame seeds are simply the classic basic sesame seeds (called til in hindi) that were dry roasted on a frying pan for just about 3-4 minutes on medium flame until they start releasing flavour and are just about to turn brown in colour.
Let the toasted sesame seeds cool and then blend together with water to prepare the tahini paste.
Now prepare the hummus by simply mixing together boiled chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini paste, chickpea water, salt, olive oil and garlic until a smooth paste is formed.
Refrigerate for about an hour before serving with crackers, lavash or vegetables and enjoy 🙂
