Indian food is flavorful, with unique blends of seasonings that tantalize your taste buds. Spicy Indian Hummus is the perfect introduction to Indian flavors, and it will leave you wanting to experience more. Thanks to McCormick’s Indian Spice blends, my first endeavor into creating Indian food at home was a huge success. With a simple Indian food recipe like this, this recipe is SO easy to replicate.
Experimenting with foods from all over the world is exciting. Its a way to get to know more about people and places that are far away, while bringing the tastes of those distant lands right into our kitchens. McCormick’s Flavor Forcast 2014 report offers a look at the mouthwatering tastes and trends that will be connecting people and cultures around the world and driving culinary innovation in years to come.
It isn’t hard to believe that one of this year’s trends is Modern Masala. It goes beyond basic curries and allows people to explore the vibrant flavors of richly spiced Indian cuisine in new, modern contexts.
Our Spicy Indian Hummus brings this trend home and serves up a dish perfect for your next party. Or, if you’re like me, snacking on hummus and flat bread can make an ideal lunch. Packed with nutrients, you really can’t go wrong with this recipe.
