Five Minute Magic Green Avocado Chutney – Being indian, the obsession with this chutney began at a very young age.. I mean it brings any dish to life right? Then I added an avocado to it and it became a flavour explosion that is also really luscious and creamy. Hello chutney that I add to everything.
It isn’t all avocados though..It also has garlic, ginger..sometimes, mint, coriander, green chillies or jalapeño, lemon juice, salt and sometimes yoghurt. It is like literally my favourite sauce and during Ramadan, I kinda went a little crazy and poured it on EVERYTHING we ate. Basically it was all over salads, marinades, dips and spreads. Since I have been making it, I have come across so many variations including one in the book Together (the book with the Duchess of Cambridge about The Hubb Community Kitchen who cook for the community affected by the Grenfell tragedy). Apparently its her favourite.
Other variations have included this one from Nigella. I have also seen some with green peppers, pistachios, pine nuts, lime juice etc etc. So basically what I am saying is feel free to switch it up and amend it as you please.
I have used this sauce in these recipes on the site:
In real life, I also add it to egg salads, nachos, chips..omg, quesadillas, tuna salads, soups..basically I am obsessed.
I think I have gotten carried away with said sauce and try to add it to everything. It goes really well with biryani too. I just up the chillies. I tend to keep the sauce in the fridge and use within a couple of days..or I keep the base sauce in the fridge and blend in the avocado on the day of using it.
So…Please make it friends and tell me that you are as obsessed as i am.
