Papaya Guacamole


I know this is a really tiny recipe from Meeta's beautiful blog, What's for Lunch, Honey? but when Zlamushka announced that it was Meeta's blog being featured in the Tried & Tasted event, I couldn't wait any longer. This guacamole is one of the very first recipes I bookmarked when I started to blog hop. Its simple and delicious, and very healthy!

I made small changes, but it still tasted fabulous!


Papaya Guacamole
(original recipe here)

1 1/2 cups Papaya, cubed and slightly mashed with a fork
1/2 tsp Mustard (I used French Mustard)
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 pinch Salt
1 pinch Pepper
1 Red Chilli, minced
1 tbsp Cilantro, chopped

Mix all the above ingredients together. I served it with wholewheat crackers. It was delicious. We ended up eating the guacamole on its own long after the crackers were over! Thanks, Meeta - this recipe is a keeper.

I think I should take a cue from you, and look for the simplest one from Meeta's! I am still converting my pick to vegan:) I am still wary of mustard - have never tasted mustard in anything except as kadugu:) Dish looks dishy:)

Indranee said...

Hi Arundhati, this looks quite a tasty recipe. Besides crackers, what else can you eat it with?

Shreya said...
