Kali Gajar Hummus



Last night I had boiled chickpeas for dinner and had some leftover  so thought of making hummus using these chickpeas and Black Carrots after preparing some tahini. If you don't have Tahini available to make Hummus,  then you may use dry roast seasme seeds powder.
 Believe me, this black Carrot hummus has turned out to be very delicious.
Humnus is popular in the middle east and medetarian regions as well as in Middle Eastern cuisine  accross the globe.
Hummas is a dip or spread which is made from cooked chickpea along with garlic,  tahini, peprika cumin lejuice and olive oil.
Black Carrot has slight hint of earthy flavours and is somewhat similar to beetroot in terms of sweetness and cooks in as short time as 10 mins. If you wash the Black Carrots then peal and rewash them, it reduces it's sweetness by a bit and so it can be used in a savoury dish.
