Titli's Tips
If your hummus turn out slightly too runny for your taste, add in a tbsp of flour or gram flour and continue to process.

If you want to start from dried chickpeas, then soak 150 g (5 oz) of dried chickpeas overnight. Drain, then boil in lightly salted water for 1½ to 2 hours until the chickpeas are tender. Then follow the recipe above.
