Chickpeas, cooked – 1 cup

Pressure cook chickpeas till it is done.

Reserve some chickpeas for later garnishing of hummus.

Blend chickpeas, garlic, olive oil and salt. Open the blender jar and scrape out the sides of scattered chickpeas. Now add tahina and lemon juice. The addition of tahina makes the hummus  thick. Add ice cubes or water and olive oil as required to reach the desired consistency. Then whizz everything till incorporated.
