Curry Chickpea Hummus with Pappadums

This is one of the recipes in the "Hummus, hummus... and more hummus" chapter of ED&BV... Curry Chickpea Hummus.

This is definitely a departure from traditional hummus. You mustn't be a hummus purist to give this a try (or any of the hummus recipes in this chapter, for that matter)!

Well, yes, there are chickpeas in the hummus, but most of the other ingredients are quite exotic for hummus, including using cashew butter instead of tahini. OH YES! You can rejoice all you tahini-haters out there! (but why are you hating on tahini, pick on a seed your own size) There is also curry powder in this hummus, and a small amount of raisins (or you can use currants), for a sweet balance against the slight spiciness and pungency of the curry powder.

These can be served simply with pita breads, crackers, tortillas chips, or veggies. But, if you want to make this dip just a little more special, try serving with pappadums - Indian lentil-based 'crackers'. You may find prepared pappadums in your area. If not, try the brand I use - Patak's plain pappadums - and cook as directed on the package, or here in this link.

And if you can get your hands on a jar of Taj Mahal chutneys by Everland Natural Foods, serve a little bowl of chutney with the hummus and pappadums as well. I have tried both the Tamarind Chutney and Mango Ginger Chutney. These chutneys are naturally sweetened, and these flavors in particular are not too 'hot' as other chutneys can be. They are just intensely flavorful - love, love, love them!

You'll never look at hummus the same again...

I'm intrigued! Cashew butter instead of tahini... YUM!!

My husband loves curry! (I enjoy it too, but not quite as much as my hubby.) I have been wanting to try this for a while, and I think I will this week!

Yay! I got my cookbook in the mail late last week and just made the zucchini chickpea curry for dinner. It was delish and I can't wait to try the hummus recipes! Thanks!

I am still waiting on my cookbook, but I watched The everyday Dish and made the sundried tomato pesto...yum! I love that it is not too oily. It made lots too, I have some stored in the fridge for another meal. I will post a review on Amazon as soon as my cookbook arrives!

I recently made the conversion from vegetarian to full-on vegan and your cook books have made the transition easy and to my ultimate surprise enjoyable. You have the best hummus recipes! Thank You Thank You!

what a gorgeous color! I need to get out of my hummus rut. (even though I'm a tahini lover!)

Dreena, I just love your creativity. I loooove hummus and I looooove curry- so this is a must. You are the hummus/dip queen!

I just got your newest book in the mail yesterday. I ordered it a long time ago but had it shipped from England to Sweden and there's just been a pretty big postal strike in England. Anyway, this is one of the recipes I'm looking forward to trying the most. I sat in bed all night yesterday marking pages with stickers (I marked SOOO many) and now I just need to get cooking. Your recipes are so amazing and so are you!

A really perfect meal: very well balanced textures and flavours.. and besides, so healty!! Patak's pappadumus are also available here in Italy ( yay!!!) . What more can I say? Superlative :):):)

vegetalion said...

I didn't know you could cook papadums in a toaster oven! I've been tonging them over the open flames on my stove (and burning my fingers)... thanks for the link!

i've never tried curry in hummus, i think i'd add a splash of coconut milk in there- just splash!

hmm you've got me thinking now. :) thanks for the inspiration

Thanks everybody. I've been reaaaally pressed for time, so unable to comment back to all of you. I do appreciate all of your thoughts and comments, as always.

Vegmomma - just so you know, it's not *too* spicy, mostly because I use a generic mild curry powder - that keeps it more on the flavorful side of things, rather than spicy... I can't take too much spice either!

Michelle.d, wow, that's taking a long time, huh? Glad you luv'd the sdtomato pesto, though!! and, thank you in advance for posting a review, much appreciated.

Pecker wood, that's so awesome!! Congrats to you, keep up your vegan ways... we'll help on the blogs where we can, this vegan community is very supportive. (and you're welcome, welcome, welcome)!

Yayyyy, Emmie! Thanks... get cooking girl! :) (of course, don't forget to squeeze in some baking too)

Vegetalion, ouch!! Glad the link helped!... hubby often says I have 'asbestos hands', I can put them in such hot water and take cooking food out of pans and such - but, really it's not a good thing! Must avoid burns and kitchen ouchies wherever possible. :)
