I’ve always enjoyed avocado as an ingredient in my salads, or as a creamy dip in the form of guacamole. It was not until recently that a Facebook friend posted a picture of avocado fries she had ordered from a restaurant bar. Naturally, I was very intrigued. At the first opportunity, I ventured into making home-made avocado fries. It turned out to be a very easy process. And did I mention, super-delicious? So the next time you crave for avocados, consider frying them!
2 fresh avocados, pitted, peeled, and halved with each half sliced into 1/2-inch crescents
Whites from two eggs, beaten
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Olive oil for frying
1-2 tbsps sesame seeds
Heat oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Coat each avocado slice with flour then dip into the egg batter before coating with bread crumbs. Fry breaded avocado slices until slightly browned, about 2 minutes each side. Remove from heat and place fried avocados on a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve warm with crackers, bread or toasted tortillas. (I used toasted Indian naan bread).
