Check out other recipe with avocado- Avocado chammanthi/Avocado chutney


Ingredients
avocado 1
all purpose flour 2tbsp
corn flour 1 tbsp
bread crumbs 3/4 cup
pepper powder 1/2 tsp
cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp
water 1/3 cup
salt to taste
oil to spray or line 1 -2 tsp



Method
-Wash the avocado and cut into half,twist and turn to release one half from seed.Poke a sharp knife in the seed and gently lift it up without disturbing the pulp.
-Make straight lines in the pulp with a knife gently (like we cut potatoes for french fries) The knife shouldn't reach the skin and tear.Gently remove the outer skin and this will separate out the long cut pieces.Coat the slices with the spices and salt.


-Make a paste using the corn flour and all purpose flour not very thin.
-Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F and spray a tray with cooking oil or line with olive oil.
-Now,dip each coated avocado slice in the mixture.Remove and roll in bread crumbs.
-Place it on the tray and repeat for other pieces.
-Place it in the oven for 15 minutes,remove and flip the other side and bake for another 5-7 minutes.
-Serve it with ranch or ketchup!!

Servings ~12 fritters

NOTES
* You can add in your desired spices.And you can either add spices to the flour mix to coat too.
* The fritters are crisp outside and chewy inside.
* You can use an egg white if you're not comfortable with the all purpose flour & corn flour mixture.

hi julie, i am an ardent avocado eater- especially avocado fresh juice with maple syrup. over here avocado is so expensive- about usd 1.40 for each small size fruit.

As for your fritters, that would be something different and a treat for my taste buds, hmm ..one avocado?- just enough for me alone. ha ha have a nice day
