Guacamole ~ My Version

Avocados from Chile

Small, grape like tomatoes from our backyard, Texas

Chilli-Garlic powder from home, Nandyala

Key limes from Mexico

Himalayan crystal salt probably from Himalayas

This is such a culinary bounty from different parts of the world. The moral to this melting pot: It does not matter who you are, what your origins are, or what you imagine you can do. Destiny awaits and you will be rewarded for embracing complexity through simplicity of flavor.

With this nugget :) I wish you a sensible weekend.

Guacamole ~ My Version

2 ripe avocados
1 dozen grape tomatoes
1 teaspoon garlic-chilli powder
2 key limes for juice
4 sprigs of fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste

Cut avocados to half, and remove the flesh from the pit. Place the avocado in a bowl. Add the garlic-chilli powder, lime juice and salt. Mix and mash the avocado with a fork or spoon.

Add grape tomatoes and cilantro. Combine well. Chill the guacamole to preserve before serving, if prepared ahead. Serve at room temperature for best taste.

    aaah! I love guacamole Indira- My version is almost similar to yours, but then I certainly lack the ingredient heritage which you have emphasized here! A beauty! You have an amazing weekend too.

    “Himalayan crystal salt probably from Himalayas” — very funny, Indira! I, too, am a wee bit skeptical that this salt is always from the Himalayas as advertised…

    Hi Indira,
    Yesterday i prepared amaranth and fresh green chole curry for lunch.
    It tastes great with rice too.
    thanks for sharing.

    Guacamole ! We love it..Everytime I wanted to try it, but end up buying it from store.

    Yours looks great , a nice texture.

    Guess the lime u have added will prevent it from changing color :) Otherwise, the pit kept in Guacamole will prevent it from changing color due to oxidation it seems..Just thought of sharing..
