Avocado Fries with Spicy Roasted Garlic Dip

Avocado Fries:
Avocado* - 1
Panko Bread Crumbs - 3/4 cup
All Purpose Flour - 2-3 tbspns
Corn Flour - 1/2 cup diluted in water
Parmesan Cheese - 1 tbspn
Salt & Pepper
Canola Oil for deep frying

*Use the one that isn’t quite ripe yet, and still stiff when squeezing it. 

Mix the bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper. Take two plates and a bowl.  Put the bread crumbs and flour on the plates and the corn flour mixture in the bowl. Slice your avocado into fry-like chunks, cover with flour, then corn flour mixture  and finally bread it with the panko and put it on a plate. Repeat this until all your avocado is done.

While you are breading everything, get a pan ready on medium-high heat, with enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Once the pan is evenly heated, drop all your avocado fries in and cook each side until golden brown!

Spicy Roasted Garlic Dip;
Garlic - 2 cloves, chopped finely
Butter - 1tbspn
Sour Cream - 3 tbspns
Chili Paste or Sauce - as per taste
Lemon Juice (Optional)

In a small frying pan on low heat, add butter and  chopped garlic, cooking until browned. Once the garlic is done, add it into a bowl with your sour cream and a few drops of chili paste (add as much or as little as you want, depending on your heat preference). Mix it all together with a spoon, mashing up the garlic as much as you can. Taste it once it is thoroughly mixed, if you feel it needs a little more zing, try adding a few drops of lemon juice.
