Storage Tips

This Avocado Chutney tastes best when enjoyed fresh. If you have leftovers, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. 

To store, place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the chutney before covering. This step helps preserve the color and freshness. Make sure to give it a mix before serving

Anu’s Tips & Tricks to Make the Best Avocado Chutney

  1. Extra Heat: I have used mildly hot green chilies here. To make it spicier, you can use hot green chilies.  

  2. No Heat: If you are making it for kids, make sure to omit the green chilies from this recipe.  

  3. Creamy: To make it extra creamy and protein-rich, you can add a dollop of chilled Greek yogurt to this chutney.  

  4. Avocado Raita: You can transform this chutney into raita by mixing 2-3 tablespoons of avocado chutney with 1.5 cups of chilled whisked yogurt, fresh cilantro, and a dash of roasted cumin powder.  

  5. Lime Juice: I have used fresh lemon juice here, but you can also use lime juice. Store-bought lemon or lime juice can also be used here.  

  6. Garnishing: I have garnished this chutney with cherry tomatoes, almond flakes, and red pepper flakes, but garnishing this chutney is totally optional. You can serve it as it is and it will be super delicious.  

  7. Extra Zing: For an extra zesty touch, you can top it with some lemon zest.
