NOTES

  1. Roasted til grinded with olive oil is called tahini paste .
  2. I did not add water ,if you want sprinkle few drops while grinding.
  3. Removing the outer skin of the chick peas gives a smooth texture to the paste. It is ok if you don’t peel.
  4. It was tasty and tasted like our Indian dal chutney.
  5. I also added a pinch of red chilli pwdr while grinding but it is optional.
  6. For variation you can add mixed herbs or chilli flakes or pepper pwdr or roasted bell pepper or olives .
  7. For Indian touch you can sprinkle roasted jeera pwdr or you can grind coriander /mint leaves together.
