Who doesn’t know the Hummus stall at the Ten Kate market in my neighbourhood ‘Oud West’ is missing out BIG TIMES! Don’t get confused by the 2 mediterranean stalls you’ll find there. Walk all the way to the back and that’s the stall you need in your life.. no seriously, you’re probably laughing now thinking ‘this girl sure know how to exaggerate’ but I think you’’ll only get me if you’ve tried that particular hummus.. It’s that MANGO HUMMUS who’s to blame! It’s just, I mean, I can’t even… It’s an addiction really!! My cravings for this hummus has completely gotten out of hand. For example, one of the worst case scenarios that could happen on every random day, when I’m out of my hummus supply and the marketstall has already left I get all signs of stress. Serious anxciety attacks, red marks pop up in my neck, sweaty armpits, and short breath instantly.. This just HAS to stop!! :|
The fact I’m spending over 20,- euro each time I get my weekly hummus supply says enough don’t you think? Urgh don’t even get me started over what I’m spending there per month.. ‘Guilt’.. go the fuck away.. awayyy I said!! :O
Well lucky me I bummed into this Spicy Mango/Lime chutney last weekend when I was doing some grocery shopping at Dun Yong (gotta love that place). Every time I’m enjoying this Mango hummus I taste some indian exotic and tropical flavors so why not give this a shot I thought.
Now don’t get to hyper excited guys, I almost titled this blog with ‘#fail’ haha. What I’m trying to say here is, my hummus was good, it was tasty.. but it’s just not the same. I’m missing out on something of which I still haven’t figured out yet what that is, urgh… so frustrating. So yeah, I guess I’ll be seeing you guys there at the stall... shamelessly spending my euro’s on that super delicious hummus.
If you never had that hummus I'm raving about you'll probably gonna be stoked with my recipe, either way, it is a fact that I'm now ruined and way to spoiled to make any more hummus myself... Scroll down for my spicy mango hummus recipe!
1 can of preboiled chickpeas
1/4 of a fresh ripe mango
3 spoons of Mango Chili Chutney
just a little pinch of Indian curry powder
1 teaspoon of Japanese chili powder
juice of 1 lime
Some salt to taste
*the secret for extra smooth hummus is to add some cold water to it.
Blend the chickpeas and mango using a foodprocessor. add the rest of all the ingredients and mix it all well using a spoon. Add some salt to taste and you are done!! If you think your hummus ain't smooth enough add some cold water bit by bit until your satisfied with the structure :D
I really hope you enjoyed this hummus!
