Like the banana, the avocado is a climacteric fruit, which matures on the tree, but ripens off the tree. Avocados used in commerce are picked hard and green and kept in coolers at 4 to 5 degree C until they reach their final destination. Avocados must be mature to ripen properly. Avocados that fall off the tree ripen on the ground.
The fruit of horticultural cultivars has a markedly higher fat content than most other fruit, mostly monounsaturated fat, and as such serves as an important staple in the diet of consumers who have limited access to other fatty foods. The fruit is not sweet, but distinctly and subtly flavored, with smooth texture. It is used in both savory and sweet dishes, though in many countries not for both. It is used as the base for the Mexican dip known as Guacamole, as well as a spread on corn tortillas or toast, served with spices.
Avocado dip is traditionally made by mashing ripe avocados and sea salt. Addition of Cream cheese makes this dip more creamy and cheesy. I love to have this dip with toast or with bread...but Prisha enjoyed it with her favorite Corn chips....She had this dip first time...I didn't make this Dip so spicy by adding more green chilies as she will not be able to enjoy this dip...You guys can add Green Chilies as per your taste...When I served this dip to her she asked me that Mom is it a chutney??? Lol...She thought this is that normal Coriander Chutney..And If i want to make her to taste this Avocado Dip, I have to say YES only...;) She likes Green chutney with bread!!! So I simply said yes it is a chutney and have it...But Nowadays kids are so so smart, In a one bite she told me Mom this is not a chutney...It tastes different...I said her I have added Cheese too in this chutney so you will like it more !! And She said OK with her Innocent face :) Though She did not ate so much but yes, somehow she liked it and finished half of her Bread slice with this dip...Well..Enough for me, atleast she had it ;) Roasted Bell peppers makes the taste of dip so delicious...I love roasted flavor of bell peppers, and this was our perfect breakfast today morning!! You can use this dip in many of salads also, You can use this dip when you are making Crostini too...Like anyway, with anything you like!!!
