Curry Leaves Hummus


Instead of 100% replicating a classic dish, we can tweet or reinvent it every now and then. Of course, of course I agree that authentic dishes are always a joy and pleasure to the taste-buds but sometimes adding a couple of ingredients can make a whole lot of difference. Take for example the classic hummus, a flavourful nutty dip for salads, bread or even as a side dish for rice like the Indian chutneys (mango chutney 1, mango chutney 2 and tomato chutney), for this hummus, it is chilli flakes for spiciness, curry leaves for the loveable aroma and yoghurt for the tang-zang. As for the rest of the ingredients, definitely they are the chick peas and olive oil. Easily made in the blender or food processor, all you got to do is blend/pulse all the ingredients together for the awesome tastes.


Ingredients
1 can chick peas (to be pulsed with the liquid/water in the can)
5 to 6 sprigs curry leaves (only the leaves)
2 tbsp yogurt
Chilli flakes - as needed
3 tbsp olive oil
Salt - as needed
Method
Pulse/blend till smooth and creamy.
And done to be served.
