Avacados are super healthy fruits (yes, they are fruits, not vegetables). It is probably the only fruit that is so high in fat. But don't let that bother you. It is packed with mono saturated fat. Usually whenever you read an article about super foods you will surely see avacado in the list.

Guacamole is my favourite way of eating Avacado.


Avacado 2
Finely chopped Onions 2 tbsp
Finely chopped Tomato 2 tbsp
Lime Juice 1 tbsp
Finely chopped Cilantro/Coriander leaves 2 tbsp
Salt a pinch
Pepper a pinch
Cumin Powder a pinch
Red Chilli Powder a pinch

Method of Preparation

1. Just starting with the method of cutting Avacadao (for those who are new to it). It is a super cool trick. Hold the avacado vertically and run the knife around it from top to bottom and then around from bottom to top. Now hold both the sides and rotate it a bit. It will come apart.

2. Next with the knife give the seed a hit. Then twist. The seed will come off.

3. Now go in with a big spoon near the skin and scoop out the pulp. Simple right??

4. Now take a bowl and add the pulp. With a spoon or fork mash it up a little. I kept mine slightly chunky.

5. Add lime juice and mix well. This prevents avacados from changing colour and darkening.

6. Add Finely chopped Onions, Tomato and coriander leaves. Mix.

7. Next goes the spices - Pepper powder, Cumin Powder and Red Chilli Powder along with a little salt. Mix everything well.

Cover the bowl and refrigerate till it is ready to be served.


  1. Something very new and interesting

  2. interesting.. can you pls tell me if it would go with rice or chapathi?

    1. Hi Manju, This works as a spread or a dip... I used it with Fajitas.. see recipe in the blog. You can use it as dip for chips (tortilla)... Other options I can think of is to make wraps with roti... spread this on roti and add some stuffing.. can also use as sandwich spread

  3. same pinch,Roshni..I too posted an avocado recipe today,yummy guacamole:)

  4. Thats the only way I can ever have Avocado... Your recipe is tangy, sure must be better than the usual bland taste which I am not a big fan of :)
