The best avo dip in the universe

January 2, 2012

I saw Carol Selvarajah make this on SBS at least 15 years ago and wrote down the recipe. It’s MUCH nicer than guacamole, IMNSHO and a great way of getting a lot of healthy foodstuffs into your family.  MissN knows that I will make it on request, ripe avocadoes being available.  I usually have all the other ingredients.  We are growing our own chillies and I look forward to using them.. maybe my next dip.

“Asian type” avocado dip

Whizz together in a food processor (a stick blender works well too)
1 avocado
1/2 granny smith apple, core removed
bunch coriander (cut off roots, use stems)
small brown or white onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled
some ginger – about a half inch square piece or the equivalent (peel it with the back of a teaspoon)
some green chillies (one long green one, seeds removed is a good base to work from)
1/2 cup coconut milk powder
a dollop of tamarind paste (HP sauce is a good substitute)

This is wonderful! We like it with corn chips.
