Curry Leaves Hummus


Curry leaves. Shall we speak about curry leaves today? I guess we should. I don't know about you, but I just can't distant myself from curry leaves (Honey Chilli Chicken, Egg Rasam, Tamarind Prawn & Mango Pickle). Akin they will somehow trend into my dishes, or its just me. My cooking is not complete without a handful of curry leaves (Spicy Crab Parathal, Curry Leaves Fried Mee Hoon, Spicy Tuna Potato & Bitter Gourd Prawn Curry). I am still trying my level best in growing curry leaves amongst the rest of our local herbs (Nasi Ulam & Nyonya Fish Achar), so far, not so favorable, anyway, a packet is still affordable. I have not given up yet, hopefully my curry leaf plant and plan will strive (Curry Leaves Potato ChipsVadai, Bitter Gourd Potato Curry  &  Indian Chicken Curry), meanwhile, I made this Curry Leaves Hummus with store bought ones. Something different, something unique, unsure I am if Curry Leaves Hummus exist, though recipes for hummus has already flooded our foodies blogging world, Aplenty, mind you, millions of recipes should pop out, but this my Curry Leaves Hummus I believe is rare. Hummus by itself is a mushy, thick dip, its core ingredients are obviously chick peas and olive oil. I have them as well in this recipe of mine, further elevated alongside yogurt for tang-zang, of course we love spiciness and as I have already said, curry leaves for scent and mind blowing scent. Easy. Add all ingredients in the food processor, blender is good as well and pulse, Curry Leaves Hummus is all yours (Cauliflower Curry & Tapioca Poriyal).

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.
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support will rocket my success. Thank you everyone.
