Avocado chutney

Story: Kaka (my FIL) is always thinking of innovative ways of changing standard recipes... of course someone else has to implement them.. :-) but Kaka sure encourages you to think outside the box when it comes to food. For example - one of the things he invented is an uttapam french toast - put uttapam batter on a slice of bread and heat it like a french toast - eat with ketchup and chutney.... doesn't sound interesting? You should hear how Kaka describes it or shall I say market it. You will feel like it is something out of this world and not to be missed! In all fairness the uttapam french toast does taste pretty good.. it is a good twist on the same old uttapam.

Here's one of my own.. that worked pretty well..

I had home made Molagai Podi or Chutney Powder.. and I usually mix it with yogurt to serve with Uttapam.. But I wanted something different that day.. Opening the fridge door opens endless possibilities.... I saw an Avocado.. and decided to use it in the chutney..

Everyone loved the taste.. and I liked the recipe because it takes only 15-20 minutes to make it!

Source: AshaCool kitchen
Time: 20 minutes
  • 2 tbsp Molagai Podi (home made or store bought MTR chutney podi)
  • 1 Avocado - Peel the avocado and remove the seed, cut into 3-4 large squares
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt to taste

Blend all the ingredients in a blender. Serve with hot uttapams. It would be a real nice dip for chips or fresh veggies.

If you are interested in the home made Molagai Podi aka Chutney Pudi recipe, please see the post on Adai.


  1. I am going to try the uttapam french toast ..
