I don’t know about you but I love dunking crispy bacon into a bowl of homemade guacamole. Homemade is the best and this comes from buying store bought guacamole and never feeling quite satisfied.
My version includes all the basics like avocado’s, chilli flakes, green chilli or jalepeno, baby tomatoes, dhania and chaat masala. Yes, chaat masala. This is my secret ingredient to a really lovely bowl of guacamole. Chaat masala is used in cooking or as a garnish on fruit and salads. It has a beautiful tangy flavour that just brings a boring old bowl of guac to life.
Here is how I make delicious guacamole.
3 ripened avocados
4 baby tomatoes with the pulp removed
3-4 jalapeño or green chilli, deeded or de-deeded according to how spicy you like it
Half a lemon
1/8th teaspoon of chaat masala
1 teaspoon of red chilli flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
Mash your avocados in a bowl, I like using a fork for this. Finely chop your baby tomatoes and green chilli. Or pop them into a food processor and pulse. I like them a bit chunky rather than in liquid form. Add the tomato and chilli mix to the mashed avocado, add your red chilli flakes, chaat masala, salt and pepper and mix until just combined. Check seasoning by grabbing some corn chips or bacon (I don’t judge) and adjust seasoning if necessary. Add the juice of half a lemon or to taste and enjoy.
