Hot and Spicy Avacado Sauce July 21, 2008

Posted by live2cook in Sauces and Gravies.

“Shall we buy Avocado?”, asked DH.

“For What?”, asked me as it was not in our weekly grocery list.

“It makes a nice face pack”, replied him.

“Arrrrrrrrgh!!!”, said me. :)

Thanks to the Indian Beauty parlors for men, my DH has some knowledge and liking for herbal beauty tips!!! “Maintaining skin health is for everyone”, is his point. Though I agree with that, I am not a fan of wasting good food items like this. So, I will always stop him from buying avocado for face pack and stuff. In fact, I will let him turn towards avocado, if and only if my weekly grocery list has avocado in it for the week ahead menu. ;)

But, during last week’s visit to grocery store, I gave myself up to the beauty of the green and smooth skinned Mexican avocado, even though I didn’t have any plans for it. The avocado was huge and looked like a small papaya. Without a second thought, I bought it.

Since, I had different plans for the week end meals, the avocado sat in the fridge, untouched. DH’s eyes was hawking the avocado and reminding me that it might turn into a face pack anytime. How come I let him pamper with some herbal treatment and become the “Mister Universe”? ;)

I hurried and searched for some way to turn the avocado into some recipe. I got some idea for avocado sauce and whipped up one with the ingredients that I had in hand.


2 cups avocado (Pitted, peeled and chopped)
1/2 cup Plain yogurt (Homemade or store bought)
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning (If not in hand, blend together basil, oregano, parsley flakes, sage, rosemary)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp Sugar
2-3 JalapeƱo or other hot peppers (Chopped)


Take all the ingredients in a blender and grind into smooth puree. Adjust salt to taste. Serve as dipping sauce or toss with some cooked pasta and serve.

I served it with some homemade dumplings for brunch. The sauce was different and we liked the brunch menu a lot. This sauce gets its unique place in my recipe collection as it was a nice variation for the usual tomato or milk based sauces. This is my entry for the AFAM – Avocado event hosted by Archana.
