Avocado is also known as the alligator pear. Here in India it is know as the Makhanphal. It is the most nutritive among fruits. The pulp is rich in proteins and fat but low in carbohydrates. The fat is similar to olive oil in composition. There are two available varieties of avocados in the market today. The rough-skinned, almost black Hass and the smooth, thin-skinned green Fuerte. The Hass has a smaller pit and a more buttery texture than the Fuerte. I have used the Hass…as it has a more buttery texture.   It was not available in India until recently.  These days people are more willing to experiment with their tastebuds. I have tried to fuse the mexican guacamole with the south indian coconut chutney and the result was amazing….I got the butter texture of the avocado and the mellow flavor of the coconut with the zing of lime and the punch of the green chillies. In short the best of both worlds!!!! And the best part is that this chutney goes well with our humble idly and wadas as well as the sandwiches.



  1. Cut the Avocado into half. Remove the stone and scoop out the buttery flesh.
  2. Grind together the avocado pulp, green chillies, coriander leaves, coconut, salt and the lemon juice till smooth. You can add a little sugar if you like.
  3. Serve with idly, medu wadas, fritters or use it as a spread for sandwiches, burritos and wraps.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
