I love the texture, I always wondered how they made it this way in restaurants. For a variation I left a little of the water out (about 1/2 cup), chilled the thick paste, sliced it and used the slices in sandwiches with sprouts and sliced cucumbers. Also, the chilled slices can be browned in a little olive oil for a tasty side dish or appetizer. Sprinkle with paprika, parsley and/or dill. Thanks madscientist97!

I was looking for a recipe to use besan (Chickpea flour) because I have heaps sitting in the pantry. I made this recipe for a dip on Sunday afternoon and I thought it was perfect to use it. The flavour is fantastic, not the same as hummus I make from the crushed chickpeas but still very good. The only problem I had was the texture, it was like eating cold savoury custard. I had to mix the hummus up once it was chilled, so it didn't look like custard. Having to say this I would make this again but only to use as sandwich filler, the texture as a dip does not suit my palette. Thank you madscientist97
