Exotic Curry-Coconut-Hummus

It’s best to always have a pot of chickpeas prepared in the fridge 🙂 If you don’t have that, you’ll probably have at least one or two glasses of cooked chickpeas in the closet. Sure, we know you, you love hummus as much as we do. That’s why today we’re making an exotic variation with curry and coconut milk.

We like to use different spices. Of course, various curry blends are perfect, I usually use a green, a fruity and a Madras curry blend. Go crazy! 🙂 With salt we would always be a little more careful and would rather add more salt afterwards. Add some cumin and smoked paprika powder.

This is our spice ensemble for hummus. Since we use the unsalted chickpeas, we have added a little more salt.

Now blend all the ingredients: chickpeas, coconut milk, spices and lemon juice. Add the obligatory olive oil and mix everything well. If you like your hummus more creamy, you can add some more water or plant milk. We like it chunky!

Garnish with olive oil and zatar. It is best to snack away the whole portion directly with carrots!

And here’s the recipe:


An exotic variation of hummus. We like it fancy but simple AF 😉
Course Snack


  • 500 g chickpeas cooked
  • 1 can coconut cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp curry powder mixed, whatever you like
  • 1 pinch cumin
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • water as needed

Serve with

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp zatar


You get 500g cooked chickpeas by using 250g dried chickpeas. Alternatively, you can use two glasses of chickpeas.
If the hummus is too thick or if it is too challenging for your blender, you can dilute it with water (or plant milk). Even if you use a thick coconut milk or coconut cream, water may be missing. Just try it – if you only add and mix in small portions (100ml), nothing bad can happen 🙂
Pomegranate seeds are also nice for the garnish, they also go very well with the zatar. Zatar is a spice mixture from Arabic cuisine that contains thyme, sesame and sumac.
