Lacto fermentation is a method to ferment food to introduce good gut bacteria.

Fermentation improves the bioavailability of food. Springer research has cited the benefits of chickpeas and ferments.

Also add to the blender roasted garlic, salt, cumin seeds and blend. You may need up to 2-4 tbsp of water to make a fine paste.
Now pour the hummus into a glass container and top with 1-2 tbsp of whey or curd water or lime juice.

Cover with a cloth or loose lid.

It smells good and is flavorful.
