Hummus or Hoummous is a creamy dip made of chickpea and tahini optionally with spices or flavours added. I have seen and made hummus too and loved it.But while googling for something to do with my extra parsley other than my quick and easy tomato salad when I came across this post and was surprised to know about this whole chickpea hummus or Musabbaha.This is a chickpea hummus where chickpeas are kept whole and spiced with cumin,pepper and chilli powder and a dressing made with tahini , parsley, garlic and lemon is poured over it and the whole thing is garnished very lavishly with parsley.You can use this as a starter ,sandwich topping,side dish or salad.I enjoyed it as salad itself.
Chickpeas: 1/2 cup
Garlic: 1-2 cloves
Lemon Juice: 3 tbsp or as needed
Salt: as per taste
Tahini Paste:1-2 tbsp
Fresh Parsley: 2-3 tbsp or use as much as you want.
Cook the chickpeas that has been soaked previously.You can also use canned chickpeas after draining out the liquid. Crush together lemon juice,garlic and little salt together and mix half of it to the chickpeas.Also add the spice powders -cumin,chilli & pepper to the chickpeas and mix well also addding little olive oil.Do the taste test and adjust the salt or the spices. Keep aside or you can also arrange it in small serving plates like this...
