One of the snacks that I make for my family is hummus, all kinds of hummus. One of my variations is Masala Hummus. Considering how often I prepare my various hummus recipes, I’m surprised that I have not posted one since 2015 which was for White Bean Hummus.

Before I talk about the recipe, I want to let you know that this is my 400th post since I started this blog in 2010! I can’t believe I have been writing so much text over the last 8 1/2 years. I think I have written more words since 2010 than I did previously. I’m amazed with how much I have shared.

Masala Hummus

Masala Hummus with Naan Chips served with homemade naan chips.

I created my Masala Hummus with Naan Chips recipe because I was in the mood for a change from my usual recipes. Since chickpeas are common throughout Indian cuisine, from recipes for Chickpea Masala to ones for Kadala Masala Curry, I asked myself why not create a fusion recipe with chickpeas and spices as a snack?

The first step is to fry the usual suspects, onion, garlic and ginger, until they turn golden brown. Then, I add a blend of Indian spices to create a customized masala which is added to the onions and cooked. I do this to bring out the natural flavors of the spices.

The onion masala is placed in a food processor along with chickpeas, tahini, oil and lemon juice. This is ground with some water until it is smooth.

I serve the Masala Hummus with homemade naan chips. These are so easy to make. I just cut store bought naans into small pieces, spray with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle them with kosher salt. They are baked in the oven until toasty and golden brown. They make a great accompaniment to the hummus or any snack.

My family was amazed with the flavor of the Masala Hummus. I think I will need to make more since the bowl is now empty. Enjoy!
