Hummus is a popular middle eastern dish almost served with all main course dishes as an appetizer and dip. Literally the word Hummus means ‘ChickPeas’ in Arabic. It is customary when visiting any of the Arabic restaurants to relish this delicious dish.

Chickpeas are a good source of fiber and protein. Chickpeas contain moderate amounts of Calories and several Vitamins and Minerals.

Making hummus is very simple and doable in your kitchen. In preparing Hummus, Tahini paste/sauce is a star addition as it adds to the authentic taste.

Hummus is served along with pita bread. Although we mostly eat Wheat Roti/Paratha , I like to have just wheat roti and hummus. It's a perfect dish to have in your diet plan.
