Food makes us happy! In the case of Hummus, it’s quite literally a fact.
When you consume hummus, it helps release the Serotonin hormone (Stimulates happiness). Isn’t that so cool? I fumbled upon its benefits and was left spellbound.
What are the benefits of eating hummus?
- It promotes good sleep!
- It also improves cardiovascular health.
- Consuming hummus increases muscle elasticity. (good for fitness freaks)
What is hummus made of?
For those who have no clue, hummus is a middle eastern dip that is made by blending chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil! The result is “oh so yummy!!”.
What do you eat hummus with?
Practically everything. You can smear it on your favorite bread, try it along with a variety of chips, and also use it as a dip instead of mayonnaise or mustard.
Here are some of the best places I’ve tried this middle eastern dip!
- Bay route, All over Mumbai:
While costing might be on the higher side, Bay route happens to give you the best experience of the middle eastern cuisine. Sip their famous drink “LaBan” along.
- Mabruk, Sahara Star, Parle:
Mabruk is another specialty place that gives you an authentic experience at a high cost. If you’re looking to introduce yourself to this cuisine, this is a good place to start.
- Country of Origin, Bandra & Malabar Hill:
Let’s add a bakery to this list. This is one of the most unique bakeries that houses a variety of food items from around the countries. They have 4 types of hummus and it’s considered to be really good.
There are many other places that I’ve yet to visit and try. What about you? Have you visited any hummus place I should know about? If yes, then please do comment and let me know. I’d love to try it out.
Happy Maundy Thursday to everyone!
