Avocado Yogurt Dip

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

I have taken quite a liking for Pita Chips off late. They are incredibly delicious, addictive & easy to make & is so much healthier than a bag of potato chips.

These fresh from oven triangles pre-brushed with olive oil & coated with herbs pair up with dips really well, & makes a crunchy munchy snack.

I had a ripe Avocado craving for attention, not wanting to make the usual Guacamole or Salsa, I tried my hand at Avocado Yogurt Dip

It turned out creamier than the usual guacamole because of the addition of yogurt. Ground cumin & thyme did add a dash of fresh taste.

If you have guests coming over, this is perfect party material.

You Will Need:

  • 1 Haas ripe avocado
  • 3/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 red onion - finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped green chillies
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme
  • 1 garlic clove - minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Cut the avocado lengthwise into halves. De seed & scoop out the avocado from the peel & put it into a large mixing bowl.
  • Mash the avocado with a fork. Make sure to retain a few chunks.
  • Add chopped onions, green chillies & garlic
  • Add yogurt & salt & mix well
  • Sprinkle ground cumin & dried thyme
  • Cover the bowl with a lid to prevent oxidation
  • Refrigerate for 30 - 40 mins for the flavors to infuse

Serve with Pita chips, tortillas, veggies or even use in sandwiches as a spread .. Enjoi !!!

  • Bury the Avocado pit in the Guacamole before refrigerating it. This will prevent Guacamole from turning brown. Do remember to remove the pit before serving :)
  • If you don't have yogurt, you can use sour cream instead
