Veggie Hummus Wrap

Hummus is the dip made from chick peas/garbanzo beans and it is famous dip of middle eastern cuisine. I love hummus and falafel both. I came up with kind of fusion of both recipe together. Hope you all also like this fusion....

For Hummus
1 can garbanzo beans
1-2 tbsp sour cream/curd
2 tbsp tahini sauce (I used the store bought)
2-3 garlic cloves minced
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt as per taste
parsley (finely chopped)
cayenne pepper powder

For Wrap
1 packet whole wheat pita pockets
2 tomatoes (finely chopped)
1/2 cup cucumber (finely chopped)
1/2 cup green or red belle pepper
1 cup lattes (chopped)
2 tsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp curd
hot red chili sauce
For Hummus
Wash garbanzo beans under running water. Make smooth puree of all the ingredients except parsley. Do not add any water or if needed add just 2-3 tbsp only. Take one bowl or serving dish and take out hummus. Make one hole in the centre and put parsley in it. Drizzle the hummus with some olive oil and sprinkle some cayenne pepper.

For Wrap
Take one bowl with tahini sauce, mayonnaise and curd. Mix all them well to make smooth sauce, which has white color.

Open the pita pocket and Spread hummus all around it. Add some chopped tomato,cucumber,bell pepper and lettuce. Add spoonful of white sauce on it. If you want to have spice wrap then add some hot red chili sauce as per taste.

These wraps can be made very quickly, so it is one of the weekday comfort meal.
You can serve only hummus with any chips as an appetizer also.
In Hummus except garbanzo beans, other ingredients can be varied in proportion as per your taste. If you like roasted garlic then you can add roasted garlic. If you like tahini sauce more, add it more as per your taste.
