It may be winter, but in my opinion, anytime is a good time for guacamole. Plus, this curry guacamole is vibrant and refreshing, which is almost like getting a little dose of sunshine. Almost.
While traditional guacamole is amazing, it’s fun and delicious to mix things up too. It’s already a given that this guacamole variation is seasoned with curry, but it also has fresh ginger, green onions and toasted cumin seeds, in addition to the classic lime juice, jalapeño, cilantro and garlic. It’s guac-tastic!
My favorite part about this perfect dip? Definitely the toasted cumin seeds. The flavor and texture adds a little something special, and I just can’t get enough of it. For real, I pretty much ate my weight in this guacamole the day I made it. I decided it was my lunch for the day and it was an epic one. And, come on…you know you want guacamole with legit chips and/or veggies for lunch!
Okay, enough chatter. Grab your avocados and get mashing. And, don’t forget the toasted cumin seeds!
Cheers and enjoy!
This curry guacamole makes for a refreshing twist on the standard! It features fresh ginger, green onion, curry powder and toasted cumin seeds, along with some of the classic guacamole ingredients. It is a delicious way to mix things up, but not veer too far from the classic.
- 3 medium-large ripe avocados, sliced in half with pit and skin removed
- 1.5 small limes, juiced
- 3 green onions, finely chopped
- 1 small jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped (leave some seeds in if you want more heat)
- 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 Tbsp curry powder
- 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
- Sea salt, to taste
- 1 Tbsp cumin seeds, for garnish
- Pumpkin seeds for garnish, optional
Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add cumin seeds to the pan and stir constantly, until seeds become fragrant and turn slightly darker (about 2-3 minutes). Remove from pan to cool.
Add the avocados, lime juice, ginger and garlic to a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher or fork until avocado is mashed up to your desired consistency. Then, stir in the green onions, jalapeño, curry powder, sea salt and half the toasted cumin seeds. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
Transfer guacamole to a serving bowl and garnish the top with the remaining cumin seeds, and desired amount of pumpkin seeds, if using. Serve with whatever your heart desires, but I recommend veggies and/or Siete grain-free lime tortilla chips.
