In Arabic the word hummus is used to describe the dish or just chickpeas by themselves. The full name of the dish is hummus bi tahina (Arabic: حُمُّص بطحينة) 'chickpeas with tahini'. Hummus is popular in various local forms throughout the Middle Eastern world, but its origins are unknown and highly debated throughout the Middle East.
