Servings 4 servings


  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp chopped dill + more for garnish
  • 1 1/4 tsp garlic powder divided
  • 1 tsp kosher salt divided
  • 2 15 oz cans chickpeas drain and rinsed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 pieces naan or pita
  • 1 cup hummus
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • cilantro for garnish


For the yogurt sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, dill, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp kosher salt, and 3 to 4 Tbsp water until a loose sauce forms.

For the chickpeas:

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine 1 tsp garlic powder, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, red pepper flakes, black pepper, and 3/4 tsp salt. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add in the chickpeas and spices. Saute, stirring often, until chickpeas are warm and coated evenly with the spices (about 5 minutes).

To serve:

  1. Spread hummus on a piece of naan followed by the dill dip, chickpeas, tomatoes, and cilantro. Repeat with the rest of the naan and ingredients. Serve right away.
