Hummus is a common Middle Eastern dip made of chickpeas and served with pita bread and Falafel.
On the occasion of the Indian Independence Day, we at Wellcure decided to give it a patriotic twist to suit the mood of the day and the Indian palette.
It's dairy-free, oil-free and gluten-free.

  • Chickpeas: ¾ cup ( soaked)

For Saffron hummus

  • Sesame seeds: 2 tbsp (roasted)
  • Kashmiri chilli: 1-2
  • Lime juice: 2 tbsp
  • Red Bell Pepper: 1 no
  • Rock salt to taste
  • Cumin seeds: 1 tbsp.
  • Chilli powder: as required
  • Jaggery powder: ¼ tsp

For White hummus

  • Potatoes (boiled & mashed): 3 tbsp
  • Cashew nuts: 15 (soaked)
  • Coconut milk: as required for grinding
  • Garlic: 3 cloves
  • Lime juice: 2 tbsp
  • Rock salt: to taste

For Green hummus

  • Mint leaves: 3 tbsp (chopped)
  • Coriander leaves: 3 tbsp (chopped)
  • Capsicum: 3 tbsp (chopped)
  • Green chilli: 1-2 (chopped)
  • Garlic: 3 cloves
  • Lime juice: 2 tbsp
  • Rock salt: to taste
  • Boil the soaked chickpeas and drain excess water.
  • Chop the Kashmiri chilli and soak it in lime juice for 2-3 hours.
  • Roast the red bell pepper on an open flame until the skin gets blackened.
  • Wash it under the tap to remove the skin. And chop it to get 3 tablespoons of chopped roasted red bell pepper.
  • Divide the chickpeas into three parts.
  • First, make the white hummus by making a smooth paste of soaked cashews.
  • Add to it all the other ingredients listed under white hummus and one part of the chickpeas.
  • Blend it by adding just enough coconut milk to get a smooth paste.
  • Remove and keep aside.
  • Now add all the ingredients for the green hummus and the second part of chickpeas and blend with water to get a spicy tangy green coloured hummus.
  • Wash the blender and wipe dry.
  • To prepare saffron hummus, make a paste of sesame seeds.
  • Add to it the rest of the ingredients and the third part of chickpeas and blend with water to get a creamy smooth paste.
  • Now that you have hummus in three colours, serve them with vegetable sticks or cutlets. They also taste great with Indian flatbreads.


Wellcure Tip: The hummus can be used as a spread on any flatbread. Make a roll with shredded salad vegetables to make it a wholesome meal.

Eating Guide:

  • Food group: Legumes and seeds
  • Chickpeas are your legume category. This is whole foods and a great addition for much-needed protein and fiber.
  • Seeds are a plant-based source of fats and consuming naturally available fats is the best way to consume them.
