I enjoyed this recipe and am making the following suggestions: use the liquid in the cans of chickpeas instead of the water, and add 1/4 cup of tahini (sesame paste). I also added one small jar of artichoke hearts and a few dashes of black pepper. Great combination of flavors!Read More
I made this for my daughter who likes everything. She didn't like it, that's why I'm giving it three stars. I cut in half, left out the hotsauce, and it still has plenty of kick. I like it all right, I put it on my pita sandwich at lunch, along with lettuce, Craisins, & feta cheese. I will probably keep looking for a recipe that both my daughter and I can enjoy.Read More

This recipe is truly a winner, in fact, the best of the best, and I've tried probably 10 or 15 recipes for hummus in the past several months. Some were quite good, but I never could find exactly the right touch till this one. Some are too garlicky, some too sour, some too bland. All seemed to be similar, but not quite right. With this recipe, the curry powder is the winning secret ingredient. The slight changes I would make is to add 1/4 c. water instead of the 1/2 (it is runnier than I prefer). As others have said, I would lessen the curry pwd. just a mite. The next day seems to even intensify the flavors, making the curry issue even more noticeable. The quantity is perfect using the two cans of chickpeas. Thanks so much for the recipe!
What a great recipe! I thought the curry was a bit much, but everybody else liked it. Next time I make this, I will try 3 tsp instead of 4 tsp curry powder. I also used about 1/3 cup water, because I didn't want it too runny. It was the perfect consistency. I served this with grilled chicken pieces, sliced olives, tomatoes, avocados, shredded lettuce and feta cheese on pita bread. I call them my "Greek Tacos". Try it sometime, they are so good!
By far the best tasting hummus I have made. The curry gives a new twist on this dish. I had dinner guests who dislike curried dishes and hummus separately, but raved about this dish and really "dug in".
This recipe was very tasty and refreshing. I changed the servings to 8 and it made PLENTY. I also added fresh cilantro, since we love it. I served it with cut up pita wedges and cucumber slices. YUM!

This was good, but a little too garlic tasting.
Excellent! I love this recipe. Very simple and easy. The curry adds a wonderful flavor and color. Highly recommended for entertaining or for a lunch or appetizer for the family.
I prefer hummus made with tahini.
A different "take" on the original... I'll make it again.
This was just ok for me. Everyone else seemed to love it though so I'm giving it 4 stars. I usually really enjoy curry powder, but for some reason it was very overpowering to me. I even used less then called for! I would make it again, but try some slight changes.
I love hummus, and this is the best I think I've ever made. The curry makes it terrific, the texture is excellent, and the recipe is adaptable. I did add two tablespoons of sesame tahini. One thing that I am in the habit of doing with hummus is mixing all of the ingredients *except* the garbanzo beans. This creates a dressing of sorts, and more evenly blends the flavors. Then, slowly pour this dressing into the food processor with the garbanzo beans. It really does make a difference, and prevents the hummus from having super-spicy or bland spots.
Good recipe, just made a few tweaks. I didn't bother rinsing the beans, just used the can and top to drain and reserved fluid. Didn't have curry, so used 4 tsps of cumin. Only had a little over 4 tbsps of fresh lemon juice to use, but I think 6 tbsp might have been a bit much. Only needed 1/4 cup reserved fluid from cans to make a nice consistency. Added a bit of salt, cayenne and freshly ground pepper. Delicious!!
VERY good. I did not like the hot sauce added to it, BUT I added fresh horseradish instead and it is amazing! Also a bit more curry than measured.
This was good, I used 3 teaspoons of curry instead of 4 given some reviews. Flavor was great, friends who won't normally eat hummus or curry loved it!
It was ok, VERY strong curry flavor though. I think I like regular tahini hummus better but this was unique and a nice change of pace.
I love Hummus.. hard to find a Recipe I really like.. This one is awesome.. very simple. only changes I made I cut the curry back.. and I used the water from the chic peas instead of adding water... A wonderful Recipe.. My search for a good Hummus Recipe is over...
Quick, easy and tasty. I left out the Curry and instead of regular Hot Sauce I used a flavoured hot sauce - For the pita... try using Greek Style Pita - cut into triangles place on plate with damp paper towel over top - microwave for 10 secs and then place in oven until outter crust is lightly toasted.
I used 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup tahini, and a lot of hot sauce. It came out deliciously curried and lemony.
This is an awesome hummus recipe! I love curry and I never thought to use it for this! I also added tahini into mine and blended it all in my Magic Bullet and it was magnificent! I would suggest to add less curry and garlic like 2 cloves and/ or a couple less tsp of curry powder if you find it to be a bit strong. Start with less and add more to your taste!
My husband and I love this! I don't usually measure, but make it with all of these ingredients.
Easy peasy, and delicious. And there is plenty of room for variation. Don't start with the really cheap beans, though. Organic is best.
I'm giving this recipe 5 stars but I changed it quite a bit to fit my own taste, I just don't thinks it's fair to ding a recipe that wasn't followed. My changes were meant to make a smaller batch and to match my tastes and it turned out fantastic. 1 - 16oz can "Bush" Chick Peas, 1 Tablespoons Tahini, 2 to 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil, 3 garlic cloves, 1 Teaspoon yellow curry powder, 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice, 1/8 to 1/4 cup filtered water, dash salt, 2 dashes hot sauce. This turned out magnificent. The amount of curry was flavorful but not overwhelming. The garlic was VERY notable so if you want to reduce the garlic you can, I just love garlic and loved this so much I will make it over and over again! Update; I made this again for a party and this time I followed the recipe exactly and while I still enjoyed it, I think it was just so so for my guests. There was a lot left at the end of an eight hour party with 23 people in attendance :( my son who loves Indian food and who loves hummus thought it was just so so for him. I think this would be good in a hummus sampler type serving tray with a variety of other flavors to sample but on its own as the main hummus dip, not so much.
Aside from the few other problems with this recipe, there's no tahini. Hummus isn't hummus without tahini, and not only is it not hummus it's also not flavourful.
good, but go easy on the curry as it will get stronger as it sits
LOVED THIS!! I only had one tin of chick peas so I halved the recipe and it came out fabulous....my three boys loved this too with some pita bread. The only thing I did differently was rinsed the peas and took the time to remove the soft skins that just peel right off the peas. I find doing this results in a smoother hummus. All in all this was great and will surely make it again. Thanks Jean :)
I like Curry, but none of us liked it whatsoever. I used the traditional tahini paste. But nothing cut the over powering curry. Gonna try again with maybe a pinch of curry, maybe.
this is by far the best hummus recipe i have tasted. add tahini and cut back on the lemon juice and you have yourself a winner.
Nevr met a humuus I didn't like. This is good. Try adding a soft baked sweet potato, mashed to your hummus recipe, too. Tasty and wonderful colour as is this Curried Hummus recipe. Thank you!!
Daughter said, "Cold curry tastes funny! Stick to all your hot curry dishes." I personally sort of liked it but it didn't get eaten. The Roasted Red Pepper Hummus recipe I follow, disappears quickly, though.
So delicious. I added four garlic cloves as I'm a garlic fiend, and followed the recipe revision suggestions about using the liquid from the drained garbanzo beans. Another reviewer suggested mixing this with water-packed tuna for a delicious and healthful lunch and I'm going to try it. This rocks!
I didn't care for this.
I love curry and I love hummus but this combination of the two didn't work that well, in my opinion.
Too much curry. I should have checked the comments before I made it. It's ok, but I'm going to keep looking.
LOOKS LIKE MUSTARD I followed the directions, but it looked like mustard. Being from Texas, I like the Tex-Mex flavors better. When I make this recipe again, I will substitute CUMIN for curry powder.
This is excellent and would especially be enjoyed by all of us who like curry. I, too, would cut back on the water/bean juice and only add what is needed to consistancy preferred. Great flavor!
I normally do not like hummus, but I loved this one. I served it at a small Indian themed dinner party, and it was GOBBLED up by all my guests. Some of my guests were lovers of hummus and commented that they liked the refreshing difference of this dish. So easy, and so good. Highly recommended!
This recipe was delicious! Even used some of the hummus as a bread spread for turkey sliders the next day!
I love hummus but never tried making it. This recipe is super simple, takes just a couple minutes and is very tasty indeed. You can make adjustments as your taste demands; more or less salt, garlic or lemon, but just sticking to the formula here gets a satisfying result.
This Hummus Rocked! Like other reviewers I started off with only 1/4 cup of water instead of a half. The texture wasn't quite what I wanted so I just added a little more water until it was perfect! Definitely try it, this is sooo good!
Always a hit when I make it.
Pretty tasty! Will be a good spread on falafels I am making for dinner later in the week. Good recipe if you don't have tahini on hand.
This is great!
meh?! not very good. tastes like curry seasoning with lemon. I won't be making this again. It is doable with Saracha hot sauce mixed in...and bell peppers to eat it with...but i like a hummus that can hold it's own...this does not in my opinion.
Loved it! I did add a couple TBS Tahini and used the water from the Chick Peas can. It was perfect!
This was okay, but not a keeper. I followed others reviews and used the chickpea juice instead of water. But unfortunately I didn't follow the suggestions of using less liquid. 1/2 cup was definately too much and made the hummus runny. Also, there was too much lemon juice. I think I prefer hummus recipes with tahini, too. This wasn't bad, but I like other more traditional recipes.
I was rather anxious to try this recipe after the reviews. I have been a hummus lover for a long long time and am always on the lookout for a way to spice it up. The addition of curry does give it a unique flavor. I would recommend a lesser quantity as the flavor does become more pungent overnight. Similar to the other reviewers, less water is recommended. The flavor does seem to tire after a few spoonfuls. Would I make this again? I have to say no-this recipe is not for me. I will skip the curry and add the tahini.
all of my family tried it and love it to
This didn't turn out at all. I followed the recipe exactly and got chick pea soup.
Excellent. I made some modifications I used 4 cups of garbanzo beans (cooked) but the lemon was too strong so I added another cup of beans (I pressure cook my own) and 3 more cloves of garlic and additional 1 1/2 teaspoons of curry powder along with about 1/2 cup of Tahini. It is delicious.
Delicious! The combination of spices is fantastic. I followed another reviewer's advice and added a few TBSP. sesame tahini and that made the second batch even better. Served on toasted bread with meat and veggies for a scrumptious open-faced sandwhich.
This hummus recipe is easy to make. It is cheaper to make than using tahini. I did not add hot sauce to the recipe. I made some vegetable and curried hummus sandwiches for a party and these sandwiches got snagged right away. The curried hummus was still good a few days later and I used it with celery.
Easy and excellent! I'd go easy on the curry powder as you can always add more later.
I've never tasted hummus before so I'm not sure if this tastes authentic but I do know it tastes good. I plan on taking this along with some chips to work for lunch tomorrow.
So very good! The perfect amount of spice and wonderful flavor.
I love curry and thought the curry flavor was delicious, but the lemon juice was really overpowering. I will be cutting it back to 3 or 4 Tbsp next time. I totally lost the flavor of the garlic becuase of the lemon. I have it in the fridge and hope I can finish it, but I might just throw it out.
I'm sorry to say I added a couple of tablespoons of tostitos nacho cheese dip - but just to appease the kids. Otherwise the curry was a nice touch when you don't have tahini in the house. I also made the water and curry changes suggested elsewhere in these reviews.
I made this differently as well. I actually used one clove of Elephant garlic, half an onion and sauteed them with the garbanzo beans. I used the juice from 1 lemon, 2 tbsp. of Tahini (homemade) and only used 3 tsp. of the curry. I also decided to use two cloves of black garlic and some Siracha instead of hot sauce. It turned out amazing.
This recipe was very good. I didn't use the suggestion to use less water and the hummus turned out a little runny. I'm hoping that it will thinken a little after sitting for a while.
We like garlic, so added some garlic powder to make the garlic taste stronger without having extra chunks of garlic. Used the liquid from chickpeas as mentioned in other previews. Used less curry, just eyeballed it. Very good. We will make it again. :)
Halved the recipe. Added chili powder and hot sauce in the middle to look fancy!
easy and delicious.
Very easy and extremely quick to make. Tasted great but just my preference to make it with more garlic and no curry.
I have mixed feelings about this recipe. Part of me thinks it's really tasty, but the other part of me thinks the flavors are just overwhelming. I don't like it as a dip, but I did like it when I put it in a pita with cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, and yogurt. I guess the curry flavor is managable when mixed with other flavors? Also, I did prefer this after I mixed it with a little bit of plain yogurt. It mellowed the flavor a bit, and also gave it some of the creaminess that you'd usually get from tahini.
I followed the other reviews suggestions and was glad I did. A little curry goes a long way. I also didn't add any liquid until the food processor was running and then added a little at a time until it was the consistency I liked.
Def depends on the type of curry you use. My curry mix has about 10 ingredients but OMGGGGG, this was amazing. I used freshly cooked dried chick peas (major corn allergy so can't do too much canned stuff) and it was fine. No more store bought for me. This is a keeper. Thx Jean.
This recipe is a keeper, it is yummy. Enjoy!
This didn't come out like I thought it would. I will keep trying till I like it. So simple!
We made this tonight, and it was fresh & fabulous. We'll definitely make it again!!
I love the concept of this recipe and will be play around with it some more. I cut the water down to 1/4 cup and it came out the perfect consistency but next time I will cut the lemon juice down to 3 or 4 tablespoons....6 turned out to be way too much and the lemon is overpowering the curry (I used 2 1/2 teaspoons curry as it will get stronger as it sits before I bring it to a party as a dish to pass). Overall a great start though! Thanks for the recipe :)
not so much curry-more garlic
FANTASTIC! (My tip @ end) My family loves hummus, and this recipe is the tastiest, easiest ever! I pressure canned garbanzo beans (chick peas) tonight, and had left-over beans, so searched AllRecipes for hummus. Love curry, love hummus, so this was the recipe I chose to try tonight. SO GLAD I did! Here's my tip: If you love pressure canning, make up this recipe and then put the heated hummus in pint or 8-oz. canning jars and pressure-can it. Then you will have inexpensive, DELICIOUS hummus on your pantry shelves whenever you wish. My hubby is always complaining that we have "ingredients" but no "food", but with this on the shelves, I am using my food storage and he can find something ready to eat on the pantry shelves!
This had waay too much lemon juice and curry powder that was all I could taste.
This was my first time making hummus and I kind of winged it. I made a few changes to the recipe so this isn't quite a fair review. First, I was almost out of curry powder so I used 1t curry and 2t cumin (too much cumin even though i love it). Also i followed other user's suggestions and used 1/4c liquid from the beans which was perfect. Anymore liquid would have been too much. Really different, and good though. I'll try it again!!
Wow, so great and zingy! I felt like hummus but I didn't have any bread in the house so I made it into the best salad ever. I left the chick peas whole, added some pine nuts,raisins, diced red pepper and cilantro. I would take it to a party it was so good.
I will never buy hummus again. This is so easy, and wonderful. I actually started with dried beans in the crockpot
Really good recipe. I didn't change too much, just added a little sesame oil, not too much, about 1/2 tsp. I can hardly stay out of it, and it's for tomorrow! (Superbowl Sunday).
Not a huge fan of this recipe. Maybe use it as a good base to start with. Needed to add to many things aside from recipe to make it taste allright.
This was ok. I didnt feel the flavor was strong enough...it felt like it was missing something.
I love curry, but I didn't like it with hummus as I felt the flavor overpowered the dish. I guess I'm just a traditionalist so I'll stick with my regular hummus recipe.
I needed a lot of water to get this to a good consistency and I added a lot more spices after tasting. But it wound up tasting great.
I did not care for this. The only thing that saved me from tossing it was my special hot sauce and a LOT of garlic.
Great tasting recipe! The curry adds an extra kick. As another reviewer suggested, I used part of the fluid from the chick pea can, and came out with a good consistency. I also left out the hot sauce. Served with puppodoms.
Yummy Yummy! I've tried making hummus in the past and I don't like the fact that I have to buy tahini paste - which something I don't use much. But this recipe is awesome. Everything it called for I had in my pantry and it was easy and quick to make. I added the curry powder and lemon a bit at a time so I could make it such that it was perfect to my taste. Overall, a fabulous recipe. Ill be taking this dip to a tea party this weekend :)
Delicious! i will make this recipe again! it is very flavorful! I added a little water and more oil to thin it down to my preference
This is the best hummus I've ever had!! Of course, it doesn't taste anything like the traditional stuff...details!! I could eat this stuff all day long. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, is because 1/2 c. water is waaay to much. I didn't put any in to begin, then added it to the processor till it was the correct consistency. Maybe 1/4 c. Otherwise, perfect!!
Delish! I added extra garlic and it was soooo good!
This is the first hummus I have made, and it was easy. However, it is very lemony and garlicy. I will halve both componants next time.
A nice, healthy and fresh-tasting hummus recipe. I agree with using 1/3 cup of water instead of 1/2 cup. I also used 3 teaspoons curry powder instead of 4 teaspoons. Very easy to put together in a food processor.
Very nice indeed thank you
This was a great recipe, the hummus has lots of body and flavour! Great with vegetables and crackers.
This was so easy and flavorful! I always have these ingredients, so this will not be one of my favorite snacks. thank you!
Maybe I like things spicier than others- I actually plan to try it again with more curry the next time I make it. I found the recipe as is kind of bland. Although I did not add any hot sauce as it mentioned at the bottom. Maybe that it would have helped
First time making hummus, and I really enjoyed the final product! I actually blended this recipe with the Real Hummus recipe (see bottom link). I added 2 tablespoons of tahini, and only 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and only used 1/3 cup of water. I also omitted the hot sauce since my pregnant wife has been having trouble with spicy foods. Next time I make this I'll probably end up cutting the lemon juice down to 4 tablespoons, garlic down to 2 cloves and curry powder down to 3 teaspoons. It's delicious, but it seems like it's a just a little bit too much of everything. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/real-hummus/
This is a GREAT recipe to start with. I ended up adding cilantro, chili powder, garlic salt, and ground ginger. I, too, used the juice from the can. I pretty much tweeked the amount of all the spices to taste. I can't seem to stop eating it!
This is a fantastic recipe! Thank you Jean :)
This is the perfect flavor for hummus.. it spices it up enough, but isn't overpowering. I usually love the roasted red pepper hummus.. but this is my new favorite.
I used the liquid from the chickpeas instead of water, and 1/3 - 1/2 cup tahini. No fresh lemon in the house, so I used fresh lime. Added 1/2 tsp of onion salt instead of plain salt. Toasted & sliced some flour tortillas and served. Received great reviews! I'll try it again with other flavors/spices. Can't believe how simple it was!!!
Very tasty easy to make. We made a batch for lunches during the week. Awesome!
