AVOCADO PACHADI/CHUTNEY


Hi friends the guess work was good at last here is the recipe.I wanted to give my family ever day a AVACADO its very good for health , I wanted to try some thing like this and see how it turns I remembered my dad teasing my mom everyday saying u make pachadi out of everything is their any veegie or fruit left whith out making pachadi. I got inspired by his words and thought of making this. My family loved this dish. Hope even ur family will love it give a try and see.
Here is the recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

2 Small ripe Avacado's.
5-6 green chillies.
small lemon size tamarind.
salt to taste.
1/4 tspn cumin seeds(jeera).
1/2 cup yogurt(optional).

For tempering:

2 tspn oil.
1/4 mustard seeds.
1/4 tspn hing (asafeotida).
1/4 tspn turmeric powder(optional).
5-6 curry leaves.

Method:

Take a fry pan add few drops of oil and warm it and add green chillies and fry till chillies gets tender. cut the Avacado and remove the pulp from it . Take a blender add Avacado pulp, green chillies fried, salt, tamarind, cumin, U can even add some garlic cloves to it, I could not add garlic to it as I had a friend for lunch who never take garlic in her food. blend them nicely to a fine paste dont add too much water when u blend just a few drops if u want .

Take a fry pan add oil to make the tempering, when the oil gets warm add mustard seeds, when the mustard seeds starts cracking add hing, and curry leaves to it and fry for few seconds and add tempering to the avacado pachadi serve it with hot rice I even tried it on my sandwich as a spread.Posted by Picasa

Oh I missed all this guessing game. Avocado chutney looks wonderful. I only make a few things out of avacado-one is a milkshake, and the other is a sandwich spread with mashed avocados, garlic, lemon juice etc. I will try this recipe soon.
