Simple Guacamole..

I have been thinking of  doing a series with alphabetical order... I do keep seeing them in so many other cooking blogs... and decided to join the bandwagon .So here it begins with A

A for Avocados

I used to see them in the market, but didn't know it was so good and tasty .A friend of mine brought me lovely Avocados, I had heard of guacamole and loved the taste ,but I tried it for the first time .It turned out really yum and girls loved it with almost everything crackers, tortilla chips and toasted bread.

Here is the recipe I came up with after browsing lots of recipes , I did not have Jalapenos so used chilly flakes instead , got the review that this tasted much better.. 

Guacamole Recipe

This is a simple dip, which does not have any cooking process in it..

1 ripe Avocado (test that it is soft in and the tip comes off easily)
2 white onions (spring onions or shallots also serve just fine)
one spoon of dry chilli flakes  or  Indian green chilli or a chopped jalapenos
One small firm tomato, chopped fine
Juice of half  a lime
Chopped fresh coriander leaves
Salt and pepper to taste.


Cut the lime and squeeze the juice into a bowl

Chop the onions/shallots and add them to the lemon juice , add some salt and let it rest.

Chop the tomato and add to the above mixture.

Cut the Avocados with a knife all around the seed... It will split into half  when you gently twist the knife (cut  length-wise).  Remove seed, scoop out the green/pale yellow flesh with a spoon and place in a bowl. Mash well with a spoon or a fork.

Mix with onion /tomato mixture and salt and pepper. Add lime juice if necessary

Serve with tortilla chips, toasted bread pieces or a chapati....

Isnt that easy way to make a dip so yummy.... Ciao.
