Avocado is a healthy fruit to include in your daily diet and a lot of people in India also call it Makhanphal or butter fruit. It has a Mexican origin, but it grows well in the tropical climate which makes it easy to grow it in India as well. Going by the Indian taste buds, the avocado would taste very bland in itself, but when you mix it with some light spices, it just transforms into something tasty to relish. Avocados are now available through out India in various supermarkets and I bought it to try out Avocado Salsa. It is important for avocado to be ready before you make the salsa, you should be able to press it easily, it should not be hard and just turning greenish black in colour. For making the salsa I mixed the cut avocado with onions, tomatoes and lemon juice with some light spices. The salsa turned out delicious and we licked the last traces off the bowl. It goes very well with corn chips or nachos as a dip and can be served with your favorite mocktails. Try this recipe of Avocado Salsa over a nice evening chit chat.
