Avacado guacomole sandwich

Saturday, October 19, 2013 0 comments

Avacado is one of the healthiest fruit available containing a range of nutrients needed for a healthy body. They are rich in fiber and healthy fats (monosaturated fats) and very low in sugar and sodium. Regular intake of avacado lowers blood cholesterol levels. Avacado is also known as the alligator pear. They are creamy in nature and in India it is called as makhanphal or butterfruit.  (Picture source: www.avacado.org.au) 

Guacomole is a dip made from avacados and is originally from Mexico. Personally, I don't like the taste of avacado as it is but the addition of garlic, chilli, coriander leaves and lemon juice takes away the bland taste of the avacado and makes the filling so yumm!! I have also added slices of onion, tomato and cucumber to make it a filling sandwich. You can add any other additions that you may like.  


For avacado filling
1 medium sized ripe avacado
2 small garlic cloves
3 green chillies
3 sprigs of coriander leaves
2 tbs lemon squeeze
1 ts pepper powder (optional)
Salt as per need

For sandwich
Thick bread slices as per need
Few thin slices of onion, tomato and cucumber
Butter as per need


Avacado filling

- Grind garlic cloves, green chillies and coriander leaves into a smooth paste along with lemon juice and salt.
- Mash the avacado roughly. Use a bowl and fork or a mortar and pestle to mash them. I used my baby's food masher to mash the avacado :) (You can either choose to mash them to a smooth paste or have some chunky pieces of avacado)
- Add the ground paste to the roughly mashed avacado and give everything an even mix. 
- Your avacado filling is now ready.

This avacado spread is popularly called guacamole. Small chunks of onion and tomato are also added. They are used as toast spreads, sandwich filling and nacho dips. 

Avacado sandwich

- Now take two bread slices.
- Spread butter on each of the bread slices on only one side.
- Flip over. On each of the unbuttered side spread your avacado filling as much as you need. 
- Place few slices of onion, tomato and cucumber on one bread
- Place the other bread slice over this.
- Avacado sandwich is now ready to be toasted or grilled.
- After done, serve hot with tomato ketchup. Yum!!!
