Hello Everyone,
Made this soft, de

lightful and gorgeous green color avocado parathas. I never knew what avocado until I moved to the USA. When I was in  Key West, I ate guacamole and chips which was a creamy and flavorsome dip, and now I am a big fan of these avocados. Since then I tried to make different recipes by using Avocados. Avocados are very rich in fats but, that fat is healthy that is they are rich in monounsaturated fat, the good fat which keeps your heart healthy.  There is so much we can do with Avocados, can make dips, use them in pizzas as toppings, hot soups, cheesy sandwiches, greeny and creamy pasta, puris and parathas, etc. So Avocado parathas are great for lunch box, kids friendly, journeys, to prepare ahead and save for later, as they stay soft and buttery and flavorful




Preparation Time : 10 Minutes ; Cooking Time 10 Minutes.
Each Paratha Contains 136 kcal.

Ingredients :
  1. Avocado 1 cup
  2. Wheat Flour 1 cup
  3. Green chilli 3 strips
  4. Coriander leaves 2 tbsp
  5. Lemon juice 1 tbsp
  6. Olive.oil 1 tbsp / Veg.oil 1 tbsp
  7. Salt 1 tsp
  8. Carom seeds 1 tsp
  9. Red chilli powder ½ tbsp
  10. Garam Masala 1 tsp
  11. Turmeric powder 1 tsp
  12. Water to knead dough

Recipe :
  1. Wash, peel avocado and take out the pulp and mash the pulp using masher.
  2. Now into mashed avocado add chopped green chillies, cumin and turmeric powder, salt, carom seeds, lemon juice and chopped coriander leaves and mix all well.
  3. To the avocado mixture add wheat flour, knead to a smooth dough, adding little water if required.
  4. Drizzle some oil on top to
    coat the dough ball. Cover and let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Turn on flame, and heat up a tawa on medium flame and in the meanwhile makes equal size balls from the dough.
  6. Take one ball, dust it with flour and roll the paratha thin using a rolling pin.
  7. Now, place the paratha on the heated tawa and let it cook,
    drizzle some oil on top, Flip again and drizzle oil on the other side as well.
  8. Here, Healthy, fiber and protein packed avocado Paratha  is ready to serve. Serve hot with any chutney, curd, sauce or pickle. Enjoy!!!

My Take :
  • Make a dough in advance and freeze the dough, and when need use it.
  • The parathas can be made in advance, they should be good in the refrigerator for 1 week.
  • The avocados make these parathas super soft so if you are watching your diet you can probably use no oil at all, the roti would still be very soft.
