A Tasty and Healthy Avocado Sandwich

Avocado is a healthy fruit also known as butter fruit in the indian market . One of my close friend gave me this recipe to try out. It got some amazing flavor and with its creamy and buttery texture it feels you have added cheese to the sandwich.

You can even eat it as a dip with some garlic bread/sticks/nachos.

  • 12 bread slices
  • 1 avacado medium size
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro/coriander
  • 1/4 tsp of any pickle or lemon juice
  • 1-2 chopped green chilli
  • 1/4 tsp roasted jeera/cummin powder
  • salt to taste
Cut the avacado into half, discard the seed and scoop out the pulp into a bowl. Add rest of the ingredients to it and mash it with a fork to a smooth paste. And your stuffing in ready.

Apply the spread to one slide of bread and close it with another.Heat a tawa and toast the bread with some butter/ghee until light golden brown. Slice in triangle and serve hot.

Make sure it is ripe when you buy it ... it will be slightly soft without dark spots.

A firm avocado will ripen in a paper bag or in a fruit basket at room temperature within a few days. As the fruit ripens, the skin will turn darker. Avocados should not be refrigerated until they are ripe. Once ripe, they can be kept refrigerated for up to a week. If you are refrigerating a whole avocado, it is best to keep it whole and not slice it in order to avoid browning that occurs when the flesh is exposed to air.
