    Garam masala is an Indian Spice, it means Hot (Garam) Spice (masala). you can make it at home by mixing the hot spices like cloves, bayleaf, chillie, nutmeg, cinnamon, black cardamom, peppercorns etc. - 6/11/08

    Delicious - didn't have garam masala in my grocery store, so I added coriander, cumin, chili powder, and a little smoked paprika. I am not a fan of tahini so I only added 1 tbsp. This is delicious - the creaminess of the avocado really adds to it! - 2/21/09

    Yum yum yum! Only things I changed were: doubled the indian spice used lime juice instead of lemon and through in a tsp of sesame seed oil since i didn't have any tahini. - 11/13/08

    I'm fairly new to hummus and this version was a nice change! The spices are quite unique, but not overpowering. - 7/6/08

    This was highly recommended on a 'favorite Spark recipe' thread and I can't wait to try it! I have a very ripe avocado just waiting to be used. Thanks for the suggested alternatives for the Garam Masala, as don't have any on hand, and have never used it. And I always love extra garlic! Thanks! - 6/19/08

    I can't wait to try this. I love hummus and avacados, but, like many said, never thought of putting them together. Bet it's great on a wrap with chicken. Yummmm - 6/11/08

  • I find it necessary to know how much a serving is before I would eat this. After all, that's what most of us are doing on this site - watching our nutrition intake, is it not? - 10/15/14

  • Delicious! No Tahini or garam masala. Lime/citron (or whatever those round green things are in Yaounde, Cameroon) substitutes well for lemon. Great on a wrap.

  • I will use peanut butter in this instead of tahini. It changes the taste a bit so I don't think I will do the spices here, but I love avocado's so will try them in it and chance the peanut/avocado mix isn't weird. - 7/11/10

  • This is probably the best hummus I have ever eaten. I did not use the Garam Masala, just used a bit of chili powder and paprika. The avocado adds such a creamy texture. I served this to three friends and we all agreed it was fabulous. - 6/9/10
