what makes a middle east asian food authentic? simple, it's because of the hummus/ humous/ homos. whatever. try this very unique dip that compliments grilled or fried dishes! best of all, it's simple as 1-2-3!
1 Can (10 oz)
1 Clove (5 gm) (2, If You Want It To Be More Tangy)
Tahini sauce/Tahini paste
3 Tablespoon (Sesame Paste)
open the can of chick peas/garbanzos and drain 1/2 to 1/4 of water.
put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. turn on the blender, shake it and blend once more and add a dash of lemon.
serve or keep it in a room temperature.
ever since i went to bahrain (a small country belonging to middle east asia) i never really liked shawarmas. then one day, my friend treat me a piece of shawarma and a can of soda after loosing a tennis match with me. i just took it so he may not be disappointed. however, i was finding myself finishing the whole shawarma as i keep on biting it every time i keep dipping it to the hummus of which i called it back then as white sauce. after the hearty snack, i didn't stop asking the waiter what's the name of the white sauce and how it is done? at first, he is hesitant to tell but i just keep on begging. then finally, he spoke to the chef and the chef called me in to his kitchen and ACTUALLY saw how this authentic sauce was made or commonly known as hummus or humous or homos. whatever. just try it and i hope you'll like it!
