A long time back I visited a topnotch restaurant with a bunch of friends for lunch and we ended up ordering a dish which was served with a pale looking side dish which was not at all appealing to the eyes, I took a bite and it was a smooth creamy textured paste which had a different taste which was surprisingly nice. I had heard the name quite often but never had an opportunity to taste one. My first experience was good enough that I wanted to try making it by myself rather than buying the ones sold in the stores. I went through the internet and found that the recipe was quite simple and can be made with ingredients found at home. This homemade hummus and tahini recipe is quick and easy to make, it delivers the flavorful tastes which keep you longing for more!
