I absolutely love Hummus, I can’t get enough of it. I wanted to experiment from the traditional Hummus recipe and create my own. I added some spices, and topped it with Honey glazed caramelized onions and sultanas before serving and it was the absolute perfect fusion and its so quick and easy to make!


250g cooked chickpeas (for best results soak dried chickpeas overnight and cook next day instead of using tinned)

35 ml of lemon juice

50 ml olive oil

20ml of water

3 tablespoons of tahini

1 teaspoon of cumin

1 teaspoon of ground turmeric

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon of ground parsley (optional)

For the topping

2 Tablespoons of Sultanas

1 tablespoon Honey

Half a chopped white onion


  1. Add all ingredients (other than topping ingredients) into a Food processor and blend until smooth
  2. In a pan, heat olive oil, and add chopped white onion, cook on high heat until onions start to brown ( its good if you can hear the sizzling) add sultanas and honey and cook on high for a minute then remove from heat (make sure he onions are all brown before moving)
  3. Lay on top of the Persian spiced Hummus and drizzle with Olive oil
