Avocado parsley chutney
Avocado is one of those powerhouses of vitamins and minerals, with heart-healthy fats and great for the eyes. But is it easy to get our families to eat this bland fruit? I tried adding the flavor of parsley and a touch of tanginess to make it more likeable, and it is now one of the favorite chutneys in my home!


avocado - 1 (peeled and pitted)
parsley - a small bunch (stems removed)
tamarind paste - 1 tbsp
red chillies - 3
coriander seeds - 1 tsp
mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
cumin seeds - 1 tsp
black gram - 1 1/2 tsp
oil - 2 tsp
lemon juice - 1 tbsp


Heat a teaspoon of oil. Add a teaspoon of black gram, coriander seeds and cumin seeds. When it starts turning light brown, add red chillies. Then add parsley leaves and fry for a minute. Add tamarind paste and fry for a couple of minutes. Allow to cool and add avocado slices. Add lemon juice and blend to a smooth paste.
Heat the remaining teaspoon of oil and add mustard seeds, remaining cumin seeds and black gram. When it splutters, pour over the chutney.

Cilantro can also be added to the mix. Parsley can be replaced with cilantro in case you do not like its taste.
