Servings: 4


  • 1 avocado
  • 1 Lime
  • ½ cup Coriander chopped roughly
  • 1 cup Curd
  • 2 tablespoon Milk
  • 4 Chillies I used bullet chilli
  • Salt as needed


How to make hung curd:

  • Place a metal strainer over a bowl. Line it with clean kitchen towel.
  • Measure 1 cup of curd and pour over the cloth. Gather the ends and hand over the sink. I tied over my tap.
  • After minium 1 hour, gently squeeze of excess water. Or you may choose to hang for longer.
  • You have thick hung curd now to use in place of sour cream.
  • Run the knife along the avocado until you reach the seed. Refer this video to see how.
  • Take out the seed. Scoop the avocado.Place it in blender with roughly chopped coriander leaves.
  • Add green chilli, lemon juice and salt to it. Along with hung curd.
  • Blend well smoothly. Wipe the blender walls in between twice or thrice for even smoothness.
  • Transfer to serving bowl.


  • Choose perfect rip avocado to avoid bitterness.
  • It is important to use generous lime juice to balance the taste. Otherwise the avocado's smell will be dominating.
  • You can add the zest of lime too if you want it to smell more limey.
