Step-1

step 1 : soak chickpeas overnight in water. boil with water & salt in morning. retain the boiled water as chickpeas stock for use in future to make rotis or veggies. Take a processor or blender. add tahini sauce (preparation at the end of recipe). add garlic cloves & blend well. scrape sides & add 10 ml olive oil. blend well again. scrape sides & add lemon juice, salt, cumin powder. add boiled chickpeas & blend for a minute to create a smooth paste. add few coriander leaves & little water (chickpeas stock can be used) to make a thick consistency paste. mix well in blender & serve with salad or bread of your choice.

Step-2

tahini sauce : roast sesame seeds in a thick bottomed pan. take a blender & grind seeds till they become a coarse powder. add 10 ml olive oil, a pinch of salt & blend into a smooth paste by adding little water. this paste can be stored for a month in air tight container & can be used as a dip.
