Curried hummus

Whenever I go to the farmers market, I am enticed by these great non-traditional hummus variations: with cilantro, with artichoke, and with curry. I made my own version of the curried hummus and it is really nice --- Indian notes with the curry, spicy and a hint of sweet. Basically,  it is like hummus with curry, a dash of maple syrup and some red pepper flakes or cayenne.
