As we embrace the changing seasons and the urge to indulge in comforting and hearty dishes, The World Avocado Organization recognises the growing appreciation for avocados in India’s diverse culinary landscape. Avocados, with their creamy texture and versatility, have found a special place in traditional Indian recipes. Avocados are not only a delicious and versatile addition to a wide range of dishes but also offer numerous benefits, as they are packed with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, fibre and an array of essential vitamins and minerals.
In partnership with renowned Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, WAO shares a selection of vibrant and innovative avocado-infused recipes that will add a delightful twist to your home-cooked Indian meals.

“Avocados are a great source of nutrients, vitamins and can positively contribute to improved overall health as well as heart, skin, eye and brain health. Not to mention, they have a deliciously smooth and mild flavour that makes them perfect for culinary combinations as showcased here by Chef Sanjeev Kapoor.” says Zac Bard, Chairman of the World Avocado Organization.
