The popular treat from Middle East gets even creamier with avocados, also known as butter fruit. Tip in a mix of masalas for a boost of flavour.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chickpeas, boiled
  • 1 avocado, peeled and destoned
  • 4-5 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp curd
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Red chilli powder, for topping
  • Olive oil, for topping
  • Coriander leaves to garnish

How to Make Avocado Hummus

  1. In a pan, roast the sesame seeds until aromatic. Allow to cool and then ground into a powder.
  2. In a food processer or blender, mix chickpeas and garlic, and pulse until smooth. You can add a little water, if you find the mixture a little dry.
  3. Add the avocado, sesame powder, curd, cumin powder and salt, and blend again until smooth.
  4. Transfer to a bowl, and add the lemon juice. Mix well and check seasoning.
  5. Finish with a drizzling of olive oil, a sprinkling of red chilli powder and fresh coriander leaves on top. Serve with pita breads.
