My blender had gone bad and need a fix. Yet, being the festival season I do have guests for tea or dinner. Both these cases there are snacks and appetizers which need a chutney. My knight in shining armour does try his best to help… But what can he do for the trouble the blender gives me. This is the time when the creamy avocados come to my rescue in the happy form of a chutney.
The lemon juice and the chilli kicks in the zing to the appetizer. So, yes, the happy variant of the guacamole perches perfectly among the Indian style pakodas and tikki.
The avocado chutney is perfectly one pot or should I say one fork work… I have had this forever in my old blog, but had conveniently forgotten about putting it back until today…
Till my blender reminded me.
Use the chutney for sandwiches, spread on a Kati roll, fill in onion rings, dip for pakodas, vada, or Tikki.. and it makes the snacks really special. I guess I am going to prefer this over the regular green or white chutney hereafter.
