Hi friends! I know I suddenly vanished from the blogging world, my laptop was not working n had no way to post all the delicasies I made last week, borrowed my friends laptop, so would be posting recipes in clusters. This post was to be posted on Friday were I made a full fledged Arabic Dinner last thursday. With no further delay Iam going to the post, Hummus n Garlic dip. Regarding hummus I know I neednt give much intro, its a famous spread made from chickpeas n sesame paste.
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. 
Sending Hummus and Garlic Dip  to AWED- KSA guest hosted here event by DK and Hummus to 
CWS: LB: Chickpeas guest hosted by Nithu event by Kiran


You need:

Chick peas                       1/2cup
Tahina                               2-3tbsp
Garlic                                2cloves
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.


You need:

Egg white                       2nos
Garlic clove                    1nos
Oil                                  1/2cup
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
