Our First Hummus

Updated: Jul 13

I have never tried this dish known as Hummus, but when Adeline Lau, a student of Hebrew from Kota Kinabalu, shared this picture after she had prepared the dish, I was impressed.


I just have to find time to try out my first Hummus. It is "a Middle Eastern dip, spread, or savory dish made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. The standard garnish in the Middle East includes olive oil, a few whole chickpeas, parsley, and paprika." Read more here.


Just in case you can't find tahini, Adeline has this advice for us: "I did not have Tahini. So I pan fried black sesame seeds until it gave out a good fragrance. Added that into it to blend." Susie Thyaharaj let us know that we can get our tahini from either JAYA Grocer or Village Grocer.


You can watch this video to learn how to whip up your homemade hummus. This was shared earlier by another sister, Julie Victoria Jael.

This is the Turkish version:


Can we see more Hummus by others?
