Banana Avocado Chaat

Banana Avocado Chaat – Today’s inspiration comes from a delicious Indian restaurant, Rasika, that we dined at during a recent family trip to Washington DC.

I can’t thank my cousin Darshan enough for his recommendation. The food, the atmosphere and the Chef’s humble and friendly attitude were inspirational. The drinks and appetizers were so unique compared the Indian dishes we’re use to while dining out.

One dish that resonated with all of us was the banana chat which was an incredible blend of sweet, tangy and spicy flavors. We would have never tried it if it was not recommended. While we all love to experiment with food we generally don’t like bananas in any form mixed into our meals.

When the appetizers arrived we were surprised to see the bananas grilled and perfectly stacked on the sides. With hesitation we took one bite and we were hooked. My husband and I couldn’t stop digging into the amazing flavors! With a few bites remaining, I took a snap so I could recreate it as soon as we got back.

Here is my attempt to made the banana avocado chaat as inspired from restaurant Rasika in Washington D.C.
