Indian Style Spinach Guacamole


I had just finished my day’s chores; successfully accomplished my subbing job, picked my older son from the bus stop, lifted few thousand pounds at the gym, picked-up my little one from his daycare. One thing was still baffling my mind was, “what are we going to have for dinner?” It’s a usual and loaded question in all households every evening.

Even before I could think of anything, my husband called to remind me. “We have lots of fresh spinach in the refrigerator, which would go bad if we don’t use within a day or two,” He said. Just before keeping the phone down, he said, “but, please don’t cook it. It looses all its nutritional value.”

Well, I was thankful to my husband that he opened a door for me but he closed the one and only window- “don’t cook.” What do I do with the spinach if I cannot cook it? I thought for a while and then I came up with a salad or solid concoction that I named — Indian Style Spinach Guacamole.

It was delish and we enjoyed it with the Spicy catfish and Quinoa.

Ingredients:

Quarter red onion
Two cloves of garlic
One tomato
One (ripe or very ripe) avocado
Big handful of Spinach
Two-tablespoon lemon
Half teaspoon of red pepper powder
One-fourth teaspoon of garam masala
Salt to taste
A small handful of coriander leaves

Serves 3-4

Procedure:

1. Finely chop the onions and put it in the lemon and salt solution in a big mixing bowl. Crush the two garlic cloves and put that in the mixture as well. Leave it for sometime.
2. Chop other ingredients; tomato avocado, spinach and coriander, as finely as possible.
3. Once you are ready to have your meal- add everything to the big bowl with onion, lemon and garlic.
4. Add the dry ingredients; pepper powder, garam masala. Mix everything really well with a spoon or spatula until it turns into a smooth, leafy mixture.
5. Taste and check if you need more salt, lemon, pepper or garam masala.
6. Serve it with Rice, Quinoa or Khus-khus with fish or potatoes on the side and enjoy.

Enjoy and have fun!!!
