Hummus and Tahini Sauce

 Tahini Sauce:
  • 2 TBSP sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Olive oil [Add more as needed to have paste like consistency]
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Roast sesame seeds in a pan for 5 to10 minutes . Toss the seeds frequently without browning them.Browning will make the sauce bitter. Let it cool for 30 mins.
  • Pour sesame seeds into food processor and add oil and salt. Blend for 2 minutes to get thick and pourable paste.Add more oil if needed.
  • 2 cups chickpeas [chole chana],  soaked overnight and boiled

  • 1/2 Cup yogurt/curd
  • 1 TBSP Tahini Sauce

  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp roasted cumin seeds powder
  • water as needed


Place all ingredients in a mixer-grinder/blender and add little water to make a smooth paste.Chill before serving.
