Hummus ,that creamy dip that hails from the Middle East, has a reputation as a clean healthy food . Chick peas ,hummus main ingredient, give you protein ,good for your carbs , and fibre. Like other members of the legume family, they routinely top lists of the healthiest foods . I serve this dip with French fries, kebabs or pita bread. My son is quite obsessed with its taste. There was an incident when my son finished the entire bowl of hummus before the pita bread  were served on the dining table.

Ingredients :
1. Chick peas -1 can or Boiled Chick peas -250 g
2. Tahini -1/4 cup (Sesame Paste)
3. Garlic -1-2 cloves 
4. Olive Oil -2 table Spoons 
5. Lemon Juice -2 table spoon 

Method :
1. Combine all the ingredients and grind them (Smoothly or coarsely as prefer)
2. Add little water if the mixture is bit hard while grinding .
3. Sprinkle paprika on top with little touch of olive oil.

Tip :
You can adjust the proportions of the ingredients to taste, depending on how strong you want the flavour to be and how thick you like your hummus. Start  with less liquid than you think you might need. You can always add more as you blend it ,but if you add too much, you have got a sauce, not a dip .
