And The Winner Is.............

I sure had so much fun with the 'Guess The Ingredients' fun game!
.
Had such an overwhelming response with more than 65 fine guesses !!!! Now I've some real fun ideas for cooking ...... am thinking of testing them in my kitchen ;)
.
First to the dish, it is.........drum roll please......:
Avocado Masala Buttermilk!
.
I blended 1 cup buttermilk, 1 cup water, 1/2 avocado, 1 green chili, 1tbsp coriander leaves, 1/4 tsp ginger paste, salt to taste and 1/2 tsp cumin powder to make this smooth and creamy concoction!
It was delicious, with a spicy kick to it and the avocado blended very well with the buttermilk!
Do try this nutrition of a glass for a different flavor!
.
.
And now for the WINNER!!!
No one got the exact name of the drink, but the first blogger who got the main ingredient(avocado) right is.....
Manjula from Dalitoy!!!!
Congratulations Manjula!!
Please drop me an email and your prize will be in the mail :)
.
I would also like to extend my Congratulations to Gita, a non blogger and KayKat for getting the ingredient right, a lil' late, albeit ;)
A big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the spirit of the game and made it such a fun affair, made me smile with every single guess of yours !!!!

REALLY? I would have never guessed it at all.

Wow.. i never would've guessed that in my wildest dreams but what a cool idea. I used to love (acquired taste though) avocado milkshakes when studying in Singapore but later found they were super fattening (good or bad fat, it makes one gain weight! ) so stopped drinking it. The buttermilk recipe sounds awesome Richa.. great idea there.

avocados are often eaten wit sour cream. buttermilk is a natural progression from that. i can imagine how good this tasted.

Aaaaaaaaaaaah! But considering that avocado's made into a relish with sour cream, maybe it's not so outrageous! But still ...
