guacamole recipe, how to make guacamole

mexican guacamole recipe with step by step photos – guacamole is a favorite at home and also one of mine quick breakfast or dinner solutions when i am too tired or busy to make anything else.

guacamole recipe

just making this famous mexican dip takes 5 minutes and there you go… have it with toast or any bread like whole wheat bread, brown bread or white bread. or another option is to make a grilled or toast sandwich from it. all you need are ripe avocados. and the common veggies found in the kitchen like onion, garlic and tomatoes.

avocado is one fruit i love. as a kid, i remember reading about avocado the first time in a bollywood film glossy, where a famous film actress used to apply avocado face pack on her face. she used to import the avocados from outside india :-0

when i read the article, i was like… what are these avocados? and why the face pack? … now of course i know why… coz they are rich in vitamin e and vitamin e is good for the skin.

avocados are also rich in the b group vitamins and vitamin k. also high in potassium.  they are also rich in fibre. so do include avocados in your diet. so obviously, also good for children. when making this for kids, just skip the chilies and black pepper to avoid the heat.

i used to see avocados in bangalore and goa, but did not know what to do with them. so they would never make it to my vegetable groceries.

later was introduced again to this amazing fruit when a friend made the simplest guacamole i had… and i liked it so much. from then on i have been experimenting with guacamole and finally come to this version which we love at home. much richer and better in taste than the friend’s version who introduced us to guacamole.

since i am recipe freak, i am always trying to make innovative, healthy and delicious recipes. i am still finding for ways to incorporate avocado in the normal indian food that we have.

i prefer guacamole with herbs and its really good with coriander leaves. i have made guacamole with basil too, but i prefer coriander to basil. the basil one is also good. you can choose your choice of herbs to be added in the guacamole.

1. cut the avocado from the center and keep on rotating the knife in a circle at the center. open up the avocados in two halves. remove the large seed. now with a spoon scoop out the avocados. if the avocados are ripe, the flesh will come out easily. please ignore my overused chopping board.

  1. Thank you very much Dassana! I am definitely gonna try all these tips and will let you know..
    About app, the issue is I mark few dishes as favourites and then it never opens, I have to go back on browser or use my phone app. My iPad is completely updated.

    • welcome rutuja. regarding the app, do update to the latest version. there was an issue with the saving of favorites in the previous version, but its rectified now. do let me know if still the issue persists.

  2. Halo Dassana! I love your recipes, always turn out to be delicious..I am always looking forward to your additions.. Thank you for creating this blog..
    Just couple of questions though. I have this app downloaded in my iPhone and iPad, but somehow iPad app doesn’t work. It’s really a technical issue but I hope you can help with it.
    Secondly can you also mention recipes for various gravies which can be stored in freezer for couple of weeks, it’s mainly for my husband who loves to have homemade food but can’t really whip up things from scratch.
    I am very much looking forward for your positive reply. Thank you.

    • thanks a lot rutuja. let me know what issue you face with the ipad app. meaning what error it gives. then i can troubleshoot.

      the gravies which can be stored in freeze is bhuna masala gravy, onion paste and tomato based gravy. so any dish can be made by just sauteing and mixing everything. for bhuna masala, you will need to fry onion paste till golden. then add ginger-garlic paste. then add tomato puree and saute till the masala leaves the sides of the pan. also add dhania powder, red chilli powder, haldi powder and garam masala powder. you can use equal proportions of both onion and tomato puree or onion more than tomato puree. another paste is the tomato-cashew paste. you can check my paneer butter masala recipe to see how this paste is done. a third one is simple tomato paste made by sauteing tomato puree with haldi, red chili powder, garam masala powder and coriander powder.

    • thanks anamika for appreciating the clicks. i still feel i am doing a poor job on taking photos.

      i don’t use much props and i still take the photos in semi automatic modes. i am still learning to take photos in manual mode. also when time permits i read about the elements in photography and my camera manual:-)

      • Same holds true for me also, I am also in learning mode and a newbie to the blogging world too!!
