Crunchy Ribbons with Flavored Hummus

Weekends are usually “How-I-wish-I-had-time” for me :( But this sunday was quite relaxing one after a very long time… On such days, I prefer cooking just-in-no-time but absolutely flavorful!!!

It’s usually our day to call home n talk to family… I soaked some chickpeas in super-hot water while preparing tea only… And before a call starts, I pressure-cooked some chickpeas too! As soon as we were done with the call, I got up from the couch and cut the khobz bread into ribbons… Processed n it went into my oven.

Took out my bullet mixture with a little jar and did some blending work too :P Ground some flavored hummus and what flavors? Lemon & Coriander… Anything with this flavor combination and my hubby is one super-happy person!!! So here is the outcome… Easy, quick and guilt-free evening snack :)



1 cup Chickpeas (canned or pressure-cooked)
3/4 cup Coriander, chopped
2 tsp Tahini
1/4 tsp Cumin Powder
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
3-4 tbsp EVOO
Salt, to taste
1-2 tsp Chilli Infused Oil

3-4 Pita breads or 1-2 Khobz
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper (or herbs)



For Ribbons–

  1. Cut the khobz/pita bread into ribbons using a pizza cutter.
  2. Arrange those on a lined baking tray and drizzle some olive oil over it. (I used oil spray here)
  3. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and toss it quickly.
  4. Bake on 200 degrees for around 15-16 mins or until crispy.


For Hummus–

  1. Take all the ingredients in a jar.
  2. Grind it to make it smooth dip/spread.
  3. Drizzle some chilli infused oil over it before serving with ribbons :)
