Indian Layer Dip

Okay. Let me be honest. I love this dip. It has Indian flavors or cumin, coriander, turmeric, and garam masala that will make it stand out from the crowd and have people asking what’s in it but not over power their taste buds. This is great with pita chips or naan. Another great option for eating this would be to spread the chickpea base into a wrap and load it up with the toppings and spinach (even chicken if you’d like) and eat it as a sandwich. Don’t forget to find all the recipes for layer dips with an international flair here. Fabulous Indian Layer Dip. I couldn't stop eating this. Take a hummus base and give it an Indian twist and you have perfection.

    Oh chickpeas! I LOVE those things! They have such a nice crunch to them. So, I’m sure this dip tastes delicious with the chickpea base. 🙂

      I know! Aren’t they amazing!!! I love putting them on top of my salads. I love Indian flavors so this dip is so good. I can eat it with a spoon. 🙂 Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

      It is incredible! I love Indian flavors, so this might be my favorite of the dips. I say that but the ones coming up are really good too. I couldn’t stay out of this, I think I was the one that cleaned out the dish. 🙂

      Thanks, Christina! A birthday/Super Bowl party sounds like a blast. Hope that you guys enjoy the dips. I know I’m making at least one (the Italian one) for our small group Super Bowl party. They are all so tasty though I want to make them all again.
