• 250 g boiled or canned chickpeas
• Juice of 2 lemons
• 2 teaspoon minced garlic
• 3 tablespoon olive oil
• 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
• Salt to taste
• 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
• 2 tablespoon tahini

For tahini:
• 1/2 cup sesame seeds
• 2 tablespoon olive oil

For tahini:
Preheat an oven to 380 degrees Fahrenheit and place the sesame seeds in a baking tray. Roast the seeds for 5-10 minutes and stir once or twice to avoid burning the seeds. Put the seeds in a blender with olive oil and blend to smooth paste. This tahini paste can be stored for up to a week in an air tight container.
For hummus:
1. Drain the freshly boiled chickpeas and place them in a food processor. If you are using canned chickpeas, first put the chickpeas along with their liquid in a pan and boil for a few minutes so the chick peas are hot.
2. Add olive oil, tahini paste, salt, cumin seeds, lemon juice, garlic paste and red chili powder to the food processor.
3. Blend until smooth. If the paste is too thick, add more olive oil until the desired consistency is achieved.
4. Garnish with roasted nuts, chopped tomatoes and parsley. Serve hot.
