Curried avocado dip- the guacamole upgrade.

indian style curried avocado dip
It is very exciting to go house hunting. But finally when it comes to all the packing, heavy lifting and more… It really gets so hectic, tiring and mentally exhausting. In spite of the fact that you may have labelled the boxes well,  unpacking is another daunting task.  Every time I have to move… I say never again and then repeat it all over again.
Now that we are slowly in the unpacking stage it really feels better to get back to the scanty kitchen. We are slowly getting back to setting up the kitchen and the basics are in place.
It’s at these times I love to have a calorie dense dish on the table with some crusty bread, some crunchy papadums, or even some baked Wonton wrappers to leave on the table to take a bite as we walk past each time… I really enjoy making this curried avocado dip for the same.
The curried avocado dip, I should say is a Indianised version of guacamole. It’s is not a heavy greasy one.. It’s simple, clean, vegan and quite refreshing. And full of avocados… Now that’s super food and good fat.
When my veggie load is in I love to add  finely chopped coloured peppers to it too, feels like we are looking for jewels  with the beautiful red, yellow,  purple and green.  But have to say the entire transformation is thanks to the beautiful tempering added to the avocados.
The recipe was first time prepared by accident….  I had avocados getting ready for a freeze and cooking at the same time.  Accidentally  poured in the tempering into the avocados.. Now I really had to make it happen … So added salt and lemon and yummy it had topped my favorite list. Don’t hesitate to try it… scroll down for the recipe. Save,  prepare,  enjoy and repeat.

Recipe Notes

The lemon is added in the beginning so that the avocadoes do not turn brown.
