Chana Dal Hummus

Chana Dal Hummus

Chana Dal Hummus, made from split chickpeas, is a delicious, protein-rich dip that is easy to make! Chana Dal is rich in protein, fiber, protein, iron, calcium, and potassium. Chana Dal can be purchased from international markets or at your local grocery store. It can be cooked in a pressure cooker or by soaking it in warm water for 1 hour, then bringing it to a boil, reducing it to a simmer, and simmering for 1-2 hours or until softened.


Chana Dal Hummus

  • 1 to 1 1/2 Soaked & Cooked Chana Dal
  • 1 heaping Tbs tahini
  • 2 tsp olive oil + extra for drizzling
  • 1/2 small lemon, juiced
  • Salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  1. Take your soaked and cooked chana dal and place it in a food processor or blender along with the remaining ingredients.
  2. Blend together until creamy and smooth. For a smoother, creamier texture, you may try adjusting the ratio of lemon juice, tahini, and olive oil.
  3. Once smooth and seasoned to taste, transfer the hummus to a container with a lid. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on top and dash of paprika.
  4. Serve & enjoy with chopped vegetables, pita, or crackers.
