Avocado-Red Pepper Salsa

Story: You know how some dishes taste good only because someone specific made the dish - My cousin Shubha has a quite a few specialties - Idli saambar, Uttappa, Fajita Omlet, Masale Bhaat, Batata wada.... the list goes on! Me and Shank are both fans since grad school times.. that reminds me - it has been ages since we had Idli saambar at Shubhi's - I have to visit her sometime soon!

yeah - so about this salsa - Shubha made it for a BBQ party this summer - and we hogged on it big time! An interesting titbit: There is no tomatoe in this salsa!

Oh.. and before I forget - I have to mention my BIL - Uday - I have promised him! I called for the recipe when Shubha wasn't around - So Uday read the recipe out of the book while looking after the kids... Thanks a ton Uday!

(with all this footage - Uday - you must subscribe to my blog as you promised!)
