Hummus & Garlic Dip
By the name Garlic dip or Garlic paste as everyone would call here is a simple dip made from egg white n garlic. Once you taste this you will surely fall in love with them. Garlic dip is a must serve accompaniment with Roasted Chicken but you can have them with dosa, idly, chappati, parotta or just spread them over bread n have them plain or toasted it tastes marvellous.
Chick peas 1/2cup
Lemon juice 1tbsp
Wash n soak the chick peas over night n coook them till soft, Alternatively you can use canned chick peas too.
Blend the cooked chick peas, garlic, tahina, lemon juice n salt to a smooth paste by adding enough water.
Do check the sourness of the lemon, if you feel you need a little more you can add them. I always make my hummus a little thinner, making them thicker or thinner is up to your preferance.
Serve them with olive oil.
Egg white 2nos
Garlic clove 1nos
Lemon juice 1/2-1tbsp
You can make them in your mixe grinder or if you have a powerful food processor you can make them in that too.
I used the chutney jar for making them.
First grind the garlic clove by pulsing them for 30 seconds. Add the egg white n beat them in high speed for 2 minutes. Now the mixture would have turned white,
Now add the oil and beat them again for 2 minutes in high speed. Now the mixture would have turned thick
Add enough lemon juice depending upon the sourness and salt n run them for 30 seconds.
You can serve them immediately where the garlic's hotness will be high. If you dislike the pungent smell make them about 4-5 hours before hand. It would be perfect.
This dip would stay fresh in the fridge for 3-4days. Use your imagination n have this dip with tandoor or as mentioned earlier or use them as a simple spread in sandwhiches n Rolls
If you find that the dip is not thickening add mayonise or boiled potato to add fullness to it
