I have created two blogs to share my passion of food and fashion with you. The idea is not to give you accurate recipes or tell you what to wear but to share my day to day cooking and shopping experiences with you. I hope you will get new ideas from my blog and that you will share your experiences with me. I have always been creative with everything in my life be it food, clothes or career. I like trying new things,and I am always up for trying things once in my life.

Red Raosted Pepper Humous

Chick Peas!!! - love it in any form - chole bharure, chole chat or as Humous. I like to serve this humous as a dipping, or spread it over toast or simply eat spoonfuls. This is quick recipe - delicious served with pakoras as well. It literally takes 5 minutes make.


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chick pea, drained
  • 1/3 cup tahini - if you do not have this it is fine
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 roasted red peppers
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil


  1. In an electric food processor, combine garlic, garbanzo beans, tahini, and lemon juice. Process until the mixture is smooth. Add roasted peppers and basil; process until the peppers are finely chopped. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer hummus to small bowl, cover and chill until you are ready to serve. Garnish it with some pumkin seeds, paprika and extra vigin oilve oil !!
