This recipe is an innovative fusion of Maharashtrian and Lebanese cuisine, which is sure to thrill your palate.

Hummus is a creamy accompaniment made of white chick peas, olive oil and garlic; while Thecha is a super spicy all-time favourite Maharashtrian accompaniment made of crushed chillies and garlic.

We have combined the best of both these dishes to make a Thecha Hummus that is both creamy and spicy.

This interesting hummus can be served as a dip at parties. If you lean towards the Lebanese side, you can serve it with pieces of Lavash , or if you prefer a desi touch, serve it with Bhakri .

Spicy food is something i love and Hummus is also my favourite. This thecha hummus is a unique recipe and the outcome was amazingly declicious. Initially i did not find it that spicy but when i gulped it completely, i felt the spiciness later. It is a wonderful recipe.
