If you like it when eating oriental who comes by no means to hummus. Hummus is a Lebanese specialty of pureed chickpeas, which are stirred with sesame Mus, yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and various spices, like garlic, parsley, cumin and some chili to a creamy paste. This paste is used for example to line the thin Arab pita bread, before being transformed with fried pea balls to falafel or lamb meat and potatoes to Schawarmataschen. But even as a dip with pita bread or small mezze (appetizers) belongs to hummus definitely. The word hummus, which is used in different spelling in Turkey and in most countries of North Africa, is of Arab origin, and simply "chickpea" means.
