Chilly Garlic Hummus

Updated: Sep 17, 2020

When we think of the Mediterranean, the first thing which comes in mind is Hummus. Hummus is very tasty as well as super healthy. It is primarily made up of Garbanzo beans which are rich sources of fibre and protein.

Chilly Garlic Hummus

This dip is a favourite of all. It could be enjoyed as a side, on toast, or on inside Pita sandwiches and wraps.

We have given a slight flavour boost to the regular Hummus with Thai bird chilly which is super spicy and roasted garlic. Along with it goes well Pita chips which have good flavours of herbs and olive oil.

Let's start with the recipe


Chily Garlic Hummus

Total time: 30 mins

Yield: 250 gms


Garbanzo beans/ chickpeas, soaked overnight and washed, 2 cups

  • Removing skin off Garbanzo beans helps it make creamy.

  • Reserved water from boiled chickpeas is called Aquafaba.

  • EVOO is Extra Virgin Olive oil.

  • If you don't want to use baking soda, you can pressure cook chickpeas for two more whistles.

  • If you want to use any other hot chilly you may experiment.

  • Use Thai bird chillies wisely as they are super hot, don't go overboard with it.
