Avocado and egg always work well together, not only is it a great flavor pairing but it's a very filling combination as well. This Egg salad had a nice little twist with very Desi seasonings- pepper, cilantro, and cumin.
Next time, instead of mashing the avocado, I think I'll cut it into little bits the same way as the egg so that the result is a little less mushy.
It's best to mix together the mayo with the seasonings, cilantro, and lemon juice and then gently add/stir in the chopped avocado and the eggs.
When everything is mixed together you end up with a nice rich creamy texture.
Serve the egg salad over some toast, this is a great breakfast or snack, I would personally probably even have this for a light dinner.
