Avocado Parathas/Avocado Flatbread

As all know avocado is a very healthy fruit, but eating an avocado as such is little boring, I won't say not possible but as it does not have any taste, eating them as such isn't much preferred. It blends well when milkshake is prepared, goes well in any salad, a very basic ingredient in Guacamole and what not. You may check out my avocado milkshake, guacamole recipe. I always wanted to try out parathas/Indian flat bread out of them. An easy to prepare flat bread it is. Avocado parathas are very soft and delicious. Softness is offered by the fruit, it gives a subtle effect to the parathas. Rotis and parathas are very common in Indian household. With the addition of avocado, it gives a different and unique flavor to the parathas. Also the colour turns mild green due to addition of avocado and that is again soothing to eyes.  We enjoyed eating these with chilled yogurt/curd with a dash of black salt/kala namak. With 1 avocado around 8 parathas can be made. Here I share my avocado paratha recipe.

Whole wheat flour-1 1/2 cup approx.
Avocado- 1 scooped out
Lemon juice-2 tsp.
Green chillies-2
Garlic -2-3 pods chopped fine
Salt to taste
Oil to smear on dough
Butter to smear on parathas
Whole wheat flour for dusting.

  1. Scoop out the avocado pulp.
  2. Mash it well using your hands.
  3. Make into a paste by adding lemon juice into it.
  4. Add green chillies, garlic, salt and mix well.
  5. To this add whole wheat flour and keep kneading till you get a non sticky pliable dough. I used approximately 1 1/2 cup of wheat flour. You may need a little more or less depending on the moisture in your avocado fruit. Do not add any water.
  6. Smear little oil on top of the dough.Let the dough rest for 30 mins. Then make small round balls out of it.
  7. Take one ball, dust it with wheat flour.
  8. Flatten out the ball into a round disc using a roller.
  9. Place it on a hot tawa/griddle and cook on one side.
  10. When you see bubbles, flip to other side.
  11. Cook the other side well.
  12. Smear butter on either sides and transfer it on to a serving plate.
Enjoy the dish! n don't forget Eat and Eat little MORE.. :)
