The amounts are not very specific, as all ingredients are subject to our taste. It is recommended to taste our dish with spoons to see if it is to our liking as we add the ingredients.

    Once the food starts to blend, we add tahini
    .
    Tahini is subject to taste as well. The amount between half of a cup and one cup should be enough to start. As we blend it in, we are going to add more of tahini, which is sesame butter sauce that gives out a strong flavor. We should add it in increments.

    We blend the ingredients
    .
    We add more tahini as we see fit. If we don't want too much tahini, then the alternative is to add water or more lemon juice, depending on our preference.

    We just to keep blending and stirring it
    .
    The blended ingredients are going to be very thick, so we have to use our better judgment in adding liquid. If we feel that we used enough tahini, we add more lemon juice or vinegar and herbs.
