Super simple homemade guacamole

Last week was pretty hectic and so I decided not to try out any recipes for my blog. Not that I did not cook. I just did not want to spend time on documenting the whole thing. People who don’t blog (especially those who do food blogging or fashion/ beauty blogging) – It’s not easy to blog. It takes a lot of time and dedication to blog. You need to also learn a lot. In my case, I am always on the lookout for making quick & easy meals. Always on the lookout for making healthy meals. Last weekend I travelled to chennai and spent 3 days with my besties (Janani & Sushma). Adyant was here in Dubai under the awesome care of his thatha paati & the other resident kid aka D :). Janani has been simply wooed by my site (besties are always generous that way. they always encourage and support you no matter what) and she told me that she wants to try out a few recipes from my site while I was there. Her plan I think was to cook for me but then I thought it would be a good idea to give her a break. She cooks a lotttttttttt people and I am not even exaggerating. She had made paneer cutlets, beetroot cutlets & mushroom briyani the night Sush & I landed in her house. Man, the paneer cutlets & mushroom briyani were simply awesome. Not that beetroot cutlets weren’t, but I always have a soft corner when it comes to paneer & mushroom :). Anywho, she had told me that she has never tried avocados & that she would like to try them. She had dutifully purchased a few avocados and kept. However, picking up avocados is not that easy and I remember the initial days when I used to struggle to pick the right ones. So just to save some trouble, I purchased a few avocados from Dubai and took them to chennai (judge me all you want but that’s exactly what I did and I am super glad I did that :)). Just like I thought, Jan didn’t know how to purchase avocados and had purchased the unripe ones which would take atleast a few days to get to good shape. So we straight away put mine to use – I made this super simple guacamole which Jan & Sush loved. I put a fried egg on top of Sush’s avocado toast which makes it yummier. I also made these chocolate avocado mousse that was devoured by Sush, Jan & Jan’s mom :). Boy, I was super glad seeing them eat the dishes I made. It was good to see my recipes and my food being liked by them. I got a visual testimony :). I made a few other dishes that weekend too including my chocolate chia pudding, vanilla chia pudding & chocolate mug cake. However, hands down the favourite turned out to be this extremely simple guacamole that Jan definitely wanted me to document for future purpose. So here you go Jan – the recipe for your current favourite form of avocado – guacamole.
