Smooth and creamy Curry Hummus with juicy raisins which add a burst of sweetness and compliment the curry flavour perfectly.
The inspiration for todays recipe came from a packet of Masala Wraps which I noticed whilst grocery shopping a few days ago. I usually make my own bread and wraps but these looked great and had all natural ingredients so I bought some for making packed lunches this week. I spent some time thinking about what filling would compliment the Masala flavour of the wraps and decided to have a go at making a curry flavoured hummus. The result was delicious and I immediately knew that I had to share it with you guys.
My Curry Hummus is based on traditional hummus recipes which contain chickpeas/garbanzo beans blended with tahini, olive oil and garlic. This version contains these basic hummus ingredients along with the addition of curry powder, cilantro, lemon and a little maple syrup to sweeten it slightly and make the curry flavours shine.
This Curry Hummus is:
Smooth and creamy
With mild but distinct curry flavour
And juicy raisins which add a burst of sweetness and compliment the curry flavour perfectly.
You can serve this Curry Hummus with warm pitta breads, as a dip for fresh chopped vegetables such as carrot and bell pepper or as a sandwich/wrap filling.
