Avocados are pear shaped fruits with a thick outer green -brown skin and an egg-shaped seed inside.Its not sweet but contains a large amount of fat.In order to select a ripe avocado ,apply a gentle pressure holding it in between your palm .If it yields to the pressure applied then u have the right one. The flesh turns brown as soon as its exposed to air,so squeeze lime/lemon juice on it to prevent this. Due to its smooth and creamy texture its used largely in mexican cuisines for dips.

Here i have prepared a simple and creamy avocado dip blending it with sour cream,cilantro and red chilli pdr .It is perfect for dipping chips or chicken wings .

Avocado - 1 whole
Sour cream - 3 tbsp
garlic pdr - a few sprinkles
red chilli pdr - 1/2 tsp
lemon juice - 1-2 tsp
cilantro - a bunch


Cut the avocado in half,lengthwise,remove the pit and scoop out the flesh using a spoon.Put everything in the blender and blend it to a smooth paste adding little water.Serve immediately with chips or chicken wings.
