Celebrating the month of Ramadan
Hilton Colombo will be showcasing a variety of hummuses at Cafe Kai and Graze Kitchen during the holy month of Ramadan. In addition to the special break-fast items, seven different flavours of hummus will be introduced to these restaurants for a month from 3rd April 2022.
Though the earliest mention of hummus dates back to Egypt during the 13th century, hummus is made all over the world. It is almost always the marriage of chickpeas, sesame paste, lemon juice and garlic and is absolutely healthy. Low in saturated fat and high in fiber and protein, hummus also offers complex carbohydrates to make you feel satisfied and full.
