Being in Kuwait for several years, it was pretty easy to develope the taste for good Arabic/Middle eastern food. And what is better than Hummus.
Of course we all have our variations and I have mine as well. The ingredient which really adds the kick in my hummus is green chillies. :)
Here is my very simple recipe.
Dump the following in a food processor and blend till smooth.
2 cans of garbanzo beans (drained and washed)
2 tablespoons Tahini (sesame paste available at mediterranean stores)
2 thai green chillies ( add more or less upon your spice level)
2-3 table spoons lemon juice
4-5 cloves of garlic (Again more or less depending on your taste)
2-3 heaped tablespoons of yogurt (to make it richer you can add sour cream instead)
salt to taste
Blend the above ingredients till smooth and then add in 2-3 tbsp olive oil to make the mixture smooth.
Serve garnished with drizzle of olive oil, tomatoes, olives and enjoy with pita or chips.
