My daughter's dinner plate
Grind ingredients 1 to 5 altogether.Add little water which used to cook chick peas. Make a thick paste. Pour olive oil on top. Use with sandwich, chappathi, arabic roti(khubz) etc.
You can also make this without adding sesame paste. Instead of lemon juice add yogurt. And if you like to make it little spicy add 1 teaspoon pepper powder.
You can keep this for about 3 or 4 days in the refrigerator. In freezer , keep up to one month.
Also this a best and healthy sandwich spread.
