It’s sad that in India avocado is rarely used in any dishes .. may be because of the cost of the fruit or availability or because of lack of knowledge . But actually avocado is very very healthy and has all the good fats essential for body . Good news is slowly people are becoming aware of it and trying to incorporate it in salads / smoothies / milkshake / paratha / sandwich etc .

Buying and using an avocado is tricky most of the times for a beginner . We have always seen avocado pictures as green one . But actually the avocados when green are not ripe and not ready to use . They taste bitter . A perfect ready to use ripe avocado will be dark greenish / brownish /blackish in color , soft to touch , makes a dent when pressed gently and not so pretty to see actually 🙂 !! So if you have picked up a green avocado .. don’t worry .. just put in a paper bag and let it sit on counter top for few days .. eventually they will ripen and be ready to use !! To make a perfect guacamole always use a ripe avocado only . So once you have perfect avocado .. making guacamole hardly takes 10 min.So are you ready to jot down the guacamole recipe with step by step pics .. here you go …

  • Proper avocado is the key . Make with ripe ones only . there are many YouTube videos which will help you how to choose ripe avoacados .
  • Guacamole tastes great when served fresh . As it gets old .. it starts browning . But if you want to make it prior and servbe after few hours .. cover in a cling wrap / air tight container and place in a fridge .
  • For an Indian twist you can add some chat masala , garam masala skip jalapeno etc.
