  • 1 1/2 Cups White chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp Tahini Paste or Sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Cumin powder/ optional
  • 1 juice of Lemon
  • 6-8 Minced Garlic
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 tsp Red chili powder to sprinkle
  • A handful of mixed seeds


  • Boil water for a minute and soak white Chickpeas in the water for 5-6 hours or you can even soak it overnight.
  • After the chickpeas are soaked properly boil the chickpeas in a pressure pan adding salt till 5-6 whistles.
  • Once the pressure pan cools down open the lid and drain the chickpeas.
  • Once the chickpeas cool down blend chickpeas, tahini paste, minced garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil, cumin powder and salt in the food processor.
  • Most likely the hummus will be too thick while blending.
  • So slowly add 1 to 2tablespoons of water and 1 tbsp. Olive Oil until you reach the perfect consistency.
  • Do not add more water as it will spoil the taste and the hummus will be too liquidy.
  • Once the hummus is blended properly, soft and creamy transfer it in a serving bowl.
  • Drizzle1 tbsp Olive Oil, and garnish it with a dash of red chili powder, and sprinkle a handful of mixed seeds.


Serve your White chickpea hummus with pita bread, lavash, or chips.
