Fresh Green Peas Hummus/Hari Matar Hummus


 


Hummus is popular in middle east and in middle eastern cuisine around the globe. Hummus is a dip, spread or a savory dish which is made from boiled chickpeas blended with Tahini, lemon juice, salt and olive oil. All the main ingredients are super food in their own. It has got chickpeas, seasme paste, garlic and olive oil in most traditional version.
Chickpeas are the main ingredient of conventional hummus, which have appreciable amounts of dietary fiber, protein,vitamin b 6, magnesia and other nutrients

Now days we can get hummus in grocery stores but I think the homemade is the best. When I make chole at home I reserve some chickpeas for hummus because my son loves hummus with any type of stuffed paratha. I also use hummus for sandwich. Just spread it on a bread and top it with some cucumber and carrot along with cheese slice.

What is tahini?- tahini is made by grinding sesame seeds into a smooth paste, sometimes the seasme seeds are used as whole and sometimes it is roasted. Just grinned the roasted sesame seeds and blend it into fine paste with some lukewarm water. You can also use sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds if you don't have the sesame seeds.

Tahini is a great source of phosphorus and manganese both are good for bones. Consuming sesame seeds may decrease your risk of certain condition such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Garlic supplements are known to boost the function of the immune system. Garlic is an herb that is grown around the world and it related to onion. It has vitamins and minerals like manganese, selenium and other antioxidants
