* Avocado Sandwitch,,a healthy snack

          I'm still  in  my  nostalgic moments of  a  month  of  pampering at  home. I  admit  I'm  spoiled and  lazy now and  watch out  for  every  possible   chance  to skip  my  favorite time  spent  in my  cozy  kitchen. Today's post  is definitely healthy and  a   quick  snack/brunch/breakfast,,, :),Avocado  sandwich, basically  whenever you  are hungry and want a  quick  healthy fix  you  can  go  for  it. Avocado was  pretty  foreign food for  me  until Martha(my  colleague) introduced me  to avocado  over  our  lunch  table. From then I'm just  hooked to avocados. Now I eat at  least  2  avocados  every week. So I have different ways  to eat  although  I  love  to  eat avocados   with a  dash of  salt  on it. So here  comes the recipe  of the  avocado  sandwich.

1.Small  avocado -1
2. Chopped tomatoes - 1 tsp
3. Chopped onion - 1  tsp
4. Green chilly - 1 (optional)
5. Coriander leaves/ Cilantro - 1 tsp
6. Salt - a pinch
7. Cumin powder- 1/2  tsp
8. Lemon juice- 1 tsp


1.  Cut the   avocado in halves ,take  out the  pit and  scoop  out the  flesh in a bowl.Take  a  fork and  mash the  avocado(if the avocado  is  perfectly  ripen then it will get  mashed easily).
2. Then  Add the  chopped  onion,tomatoes,green  chillies,cilantro ,salt,lemon juice  and  cumin  powder and mix well. The filling is  ready  now.
3. Now  cut the  crust of the bread  out(I  just  take  them out  for  cosmetic  purpose) and  spread the   avocado  mixture  evenly  in a  generously thick  layer in one  slice  and  top  with the  other  slice.
4. Sandwich is ready at this  point  but if you  want  it as  a  finger food in  party then  cut into smaller  cubes,makes a cute  healthy appetizer.
