Recipe Notes

*Boiled Chickpea - You can directly use the canned chickpeas or you can soak chickpeas at home and make hummus from scratch.

If using canned chickpeas - Rinse the canned chickpea water in running water, drain and use.

If soaking chickpeas at home - Soak chickpeas for 4 to 6 hours or overnight. Boil it it in double the water in a pressure cooker, with salt for 7-8 whistles on high.
