Avocado Chutney

Posted by Annita on December 3, 2008

Avocado,otherwise known as butter fruit/butter pear is a tropical fruit which has a rich nutty flavor with high fat content,mostly health promoting monosaturated fat.Studies shows that Avocados are a good source of potassium ,fiber and vitamins.It is also good for heart health and fighting against cancers.
Because of its high nutritional value,i’ve started including this fruit also in our  diet.So far i’ve tried avocado chappathi,milkshake,chutney and guacamole,and i’m still on the look out for more avocado recipes.I’ve also heard that a ripe avocado tastes good with some sugar sprinkled on it,haven’t tried it though.

How to use Avocado  :-

Avocado is usually eaten when its ripe.The skin of the avocado will turn from green to dark purple as it ripes.If you are buying raw ones,keep it in the room temperature for 2-3 days or until it turns dark,be careful not to over ripe it.To prepare the avocado,make a cut half lengthwise and gently twist the two halves.Now use a spoon/knife to remove the seed and then scoop the flesh from it.It’ll come out easily just like butter.

And now the recipe for chutney…

Ingredients :-

For Grinding :-

Avocado scooped – 1/2 of a big one
Grated coconut – 1 cup
Shallots – 2
Green chillies – 2-3(as per your taste)
Ginger – 1/2 inch size
Salt – to taste
Lime juice – 1/2 tsp(Optional)

Grind all the above ingredients together into a smooth paste adding necessary water.

For popping:-

Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Shallots chopped – 1
Red chillies – 1
Curry leaves – a few
Oil – as needed

Method:-

Heat oil in a pan and pop mustard seeds.Throw in shallots,following by red chillies and curry leaves.Fry until shallots turn brown.Add the ground ingredients,mix together and heat for a few minutes.Do not boil.Serve with dosa/idly.

Note :-This chutney is not good for storing as avocados turn black as it stands.To prevent this darkening of avocados for sometime,drizzle it with lime/lemon juice.

    Hi Anitta, How do you select good avocados? Which ones do you use- African/Indian? I tried both. I used them in fruit cocktail. At times they are terribly bitter. No one in my family can stand it. It spoiled the entire dish. Looking for some suggestion from you.

    • Vijayaa said

      I have never tasted Indian but african’s owww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I fell in love with them. Seems you have not chosen the rightly ripen avocado. The best test is when you press the fruit it should be soft. Also when it is ripe it is scoopable.
      just you can scoop it out from the fruit as you can scoop out ice cream. With rightly ripened avocado you will enjoy whether it is fruit cocktail or vegetable salad or as a bread spread (brown bread), you will enjoy.

    Avocado chutney recipe is great, Though it appears in shops here a lot most of it consumed in the form of shakes and juices
    and often it is loaded with sugar and milk. This recipe is great and health promoting Let people follow it for better health and more awareness in using avocados .
