Green Mango Guacamole

Indians love Mango, the king of fruits, and in any form :-) - green(unripe), ripe, raw, cooked, pureed, pickled, you name it. Our family is no exception. The health benefits of unripe green mangoes include, abundance of Vitamins, rich in fibre content, antioxidant properties, highly alkalizing and so on. Good reasons to include them in your diet when they are available. I try to include them a lot in Indian cooking and in some salads, dips and sauces outside of Indian cuisine as well. Here is good old guacamole given a facelift with the addition of crunchy green mango.

  • Avocado - 2 small
  • Green (unripe) mango - 1 medium
  • Yellow onion - 1/2 small
  • Tomato - 1/2 medium
  • Green chilly - 2 
  • Sea salt - as per taste 
  • Olive oil - 1 Tbs
  • Chopped cilantro - 1/4 cup

  • Peel and deseed mango, chop really fine.
  • Chop onion, tomato, and green chillies. Take the meat out of avocados. 
  • Reserve a half of the chopped mango and a couple of tablespoons of chopped onion.
  • Add everything else to a blender jar, and blend on low speed till avocado is mashed well and everything else is incorporated in. 
  • Transfer to a bowl, fold in the reserved onion, mango and chopped cilantro, drizzle olive oil.
  • Serve along with your favorite mexican wrap, salad, or just enjoy out of the bowl ;-)


   
    Note: If the green mango is not sour enough, use lemon juice to enhance the flavor.
