Recipe: Chilly Pesto Curd Hummus

January 06, 2022 14:03 IST

What makes musabaha different from standard hummus is that it features whole chickpeas. Unlike the smooth texture of hummus, musabaha is coarse and chunky.

Chef Ajay Thakur uses tahini sauce, hung curd, lemon, green chilly pesto and plenty of olive oil to create a Chilly Pesto Curd Musabaha that goes brilliantly with flatbread.
