Hummus is much popular in the Middle East and Mediterranean countries. It is traditionally made dip or spread which is eaten with nachos, tortilla chips, or even with fried fish, chicken, etc. It is an important part of the Mezze platter prepared in most of the Mediterranean countries.
I love the colorful hummus more than the regular one which is made with just chickpeas. The colorful hummus looks good as well as tastes good. The color is added with natural ingredients like beetroot, bell pepper, and coriander.
Hummus can be prepared and stored in the refrigerator just like any other dips that we have. It is made with basic ingredients that one can easily obtain.
