About the recipe
This is a recipe that my daughter Rani came up with recently after she came home from college and announced grandly that this summer she was going to make a wide variety of egg dishes. Of course I encouraged her to go for it! I would be the happy recipient of her experimental dishes 😉😋🥚! This Indian pickle avocado toast was her first fun egg recipe. And it’s delicious!
Rani made these toasts for a small brunch we had with a couple of friends and it really was enjoyed by all! With the tangy spicy pickle, eggs, avocado and mushrooms, all piled high on a whole grain toast, this makes for a substantial brunch main coarse. Serve it along side a salad, end it with fresh fruit, and its the perfect lunch.
What are Indian pickles?
Indian pickles are very different than what you get here in the U.S. and other parts of Europe. Those pickles are cucumbers pickled in vinegar and herbs. Indian pickles on the other hand come in a wide variety of flavors and ingredients, but mostly they are made with vegetables and fruit such as raw mangoes, gooseberries, vegetables such as eggplant, coriander leaves, curry leaves, lemons, and green tomatoes just to name a few. What all these pickles have in common is that they are cooked with oil and lots of red chili powder and spices. They are cooked to a soft consistency so they can be jarred and stored indefinitely. Typically used as a spicy condiment to be had with any savory dish, Indian pickles are so popular that at the Indian store an entire isle is dedicated to these unique Indian condiment.
