Run a sharp knife from the top of the avocado in a circular motion. Slightly twist the avocado and separate the halves. Remove the seed and discard it. Scoop out the soft flesh of the avocado and keep it in a bowl.
Using the back of the spoon mash the avocado and squeeze a little lime and keep aside.
Put freshly grated coconut, green chilly, salt, ginger and roasted channa dal in a grinder and grind to a semi fine paste. Remove and keep in a bowl.
Separately heat a pan and add oil. Now add dry red chillies and mustard seeds, once they splutter add dal and then the curry leaves. Immediately add this tempering to the chutney.
