I had been watching recipes made with Avocados on YouTube , but did not dare to buy them. Wanted to prepare Guacamole one day.
They are not a commercial crop in India. However they are being grown in a limited way in a few parts of South India and North East India.
Few days ago I spotted Avocados in the Supermarket and bought one for the first time.
I had read about picking a perfect Avocado , letting them ripen at home and the procedure to determine if they are ready to be eaten.
The one I bought was dark green but not the almost blackish colour that I saw in the YouTube videos. I left it outside to darken. This morning I noticed it was soft when I pressed it gently and saw a few blackish spots.
I was excited and decided to prepare Guacamole. I had also bought a packet of Nachos on the same day 🙂
I had all the ingredients at home except Jalapenos. I used a green chilli instead.
So here are the ingredients for one serving
Avocado : 1
Tomatoes : 1 medium size (I had cherry tomatoes that I used)
Green chilli : 1
Salt to taste
One small 🍋 lemon
One small onion
Coriander leaves (optional)
Scoop out the pulp of the Avocado and mash it up using a fork.
Chop up the onion and 🍅 tomatoes.
Chop the green chilli into fine pieces.
Mix all of them in a bowl and add salt ,lemon juice and coriander leaves.
Guacamole dip is ready. Enjoy with Nachos.
It was yummy 🙂
