GUACAMOLE (Avocado Dip)

Guacamole is delicious with corn chips. Avocado is a very rich source of iron,so a must in the diet of all my student friends!

Instead of chips, you can enjoy it with Melba Toasts or any other form of readily available toasted bread.
Its a great accompaniment to Mexican Rice ,Tacos,Mexican Pizza or Burittos.


1 Ripe Avocado ( You can tell an Avocado is ripe when you press the fruit and it feels a bit soft.If its hard, you can wrap it in
paper to speed up the ripening process)

1 medium onion( finely chopped)

1 medium tomato (finely chopped)

1/2 tsp finely grated ginger (Optional)

1 green chilly very finely chopped or Tabasco ( Optional)

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh coriander leaves ( Optional)

Salt to taste

A teaspoon of lemon juice


1. Peel the Avocado. Discard the pit.

2. Mash the flesh with a fork as finely as you can. Alternatively, puree in a small food processor.

3. Add the lemon juice and mix very well. (This will stop it from turning dark in colour)

4. Add the chopped onion, tomatoes, ginger,chilly,coriander and salt.
Mix very well.

TIP: If you like garlic, you can add some freshly crushed/grated garlic too.
