Healthy Bites - "Avocado Kebabs"

Posted in

Hello again everyone. I am so happy you have stopped by to try out another healthy dish from my kitchen. For today’s post, I am sharing some Avocado Kebabs or you may call them burgers. They taste just as good with chutney or as between buns.

Avocado is a very healthy and nutritious fruit. It is a good source of heart healthy mono saturated fats believed to lower the cholesterol. One of the most common uses of avocado is in making guacamole but it can be enjoyed in salads, smoothies as well as in cakes and pudding.

Let’s give a twist to the avocados and make some kebabs today.

 

 

Avocado Kebabs

 

 

Ingredients:

Ripe Avocado – 1

Onion – 1, small, finely chopped

Carrot – 1 medium, finely shredded (you can also use beetroot here)

Garlic – 2 cloves, finely chopped

Ginger – ½ inch, finely chopped

Green chilies – 1, finely chopped

Semolina or Sooji – 1 tbsp

Corn flour – 1 tbsp (this is for binding, other options you can use here is half a small boiled and mashed potato or mashed rice – 2 tbsp)

Cumin Powder – ½ tsp

Chopped Cilantro – 1 tbsp

Salt to taste

Oil – 1 tbsp

Method:

  1. Cut the avocado and scoop out the flesh. Discard the seed. Mash the pulp well with a fork.

  2. Add in the chopped onions, garlic, ginger, green chilies, shredded carrots, sooji, cornflour, cilantro, salt and the cumin powder. Mix everything well.

  3. Heat oil in a large griddle and make small patties of the mixture.

  4. If the mixture is a little runny, wet your hands. That really helps to form the shape.

  5. Cook them on medium flame, 3 minutes on each side.

  6. Serve hot with mint chutney and onion rings or with some salad on the side.

  7. For the salad I have just mixed shredded carrots with salt, pepper and vinegar.

So there you have it. An easy and healthy appetizer option that you can enjoy guilt free.

Do give it a try and let me know.

Thanks so much for reading.

Love,

Ritu

Here is what she says about herself - A few years ago I would have laughed at the prospect of writing a food blog. Expecting someone to guide you on a recipe whose own cooking experience before her marriage has been next to nil is quite unbelievable. A foodie husband and his love for socializing ensured I do get a lot of cooking practice. And when I finally decided to be a SAHM, it gave me an opportunity to enhance my culinary skills. A lot of it was inspired from a number of food blogs on Facebook and some very talented people I met there. I love to cook, especially a lot of healthy dishes. Join me in this culinary adventure where we talk about our favorite topic - Food.
