Cooking Time: 20 Minute + refrigeration time

1-cup chickpeas
2 tbsp sesame seeds

Salt-pepper-lemon juice

1. Soak chickpeas for 6-8 hours and pressure cook them with salt
2. Mix all ingredients except for garnishing and grind into a thick paste (use 1 tsp olive oil while grinding)
3. Add water if required (I used water retained after pressure cooking chickpeas)
