  • 2-3 tablespoons ice water
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • Some chopped fresh parsley


Let’s see the steps to make this yummy dip recipe. 

Step 1

Firstly, drain and rinse the chickpeas under cold water. It helps remove any excess salt or residue from the can. Next, set aside a few chickpeas for garnishing if you want.

Step 2

Next, add chickpeas, fresh lemon juice, tahini, minced garlic, olive oil, ground cumin, and salt in a blender. Blend the mixture until smooth and creamy.

Step 3

It is good to have a perfect creamy consistency. For this, gradually add 2-3 tablespoons of ice water while the blender runs. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed. Continue blending until the hummus becomes velvety and light.

Step 4

Pause and taste the hummus. You can adjust the seasoning according to your taste by adding more lemon juice, garlic, or salt. Also, you can experiment with additional spices, such as paprika, for an extra kick.

Step 5

Lastly, transfer the hummus to a serving bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the top and sprinkle with your choice of garnish, like a pinch of paprika or chopped fresh parsley. If you saved a few chickpeas earlier, scatter them on the surface for a delightful presentation. Hummus often tastes even better if you refrigerate it for a couple of hours. It allows the flavors to meld together. Of course, you can serve it immediately too.
