Chick peas have a very low glycemic index, which means they create steady blood sugar and are especially healthful for diabetics. Curry powder contains curcumin, an antioxidant believed to be anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer.

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! Read More

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! Read More

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". Read More
