Avocado a super fruit is a nutritional powerhouse providing numerous potential health benefits. I love the rich creamy texture and taste of this fruit. This is fruit with healthy fats, proteins and dietary fiber. For many days I wanted to prepare this paratha an Indian styled dish, today finally got time to prepare this. These crispy paratha are very tasty, here is how I prepared it..
Avocado : 1 Medium
Whole wheat Flour : 1 cup
Cilantro leaves : 1 tablespoon finely chopped
Garlic : 2 large finely chopped
Thai Green chili : 1 small finely chopped
Black Peppercorn powder : 1 teaspoon
Cumin Powder : 1 teaspoon
Curry Powder : 1 teaspoon
Lime Juice : 1 tablespoon
Oil : 1 tablespoon ( I used Olive oil)
Butter : little
Salt : 1 tablespoon
Choose a fully ripe Avocado, remove the pulp and mash it well with a potato masher. Make it to a fine paste. Add green chili, Peppercorn powder, cumin powder, Curry powder, lime juice, garlic, cilantro leaves, oil, salt and mix well with the mashed avocado. All of them should blend well. No need to add water, as avocado itself would be easy to mix. Now slowly add wheat flour and mix with this paste. Keep adding and mixing. There would be no need of water. Make it to a consistency as normal paratha dough. All the flour will mix well with avocado and stick well.
Next make balls out of this dough. Then roll the balls dusting a little flour into round shape with a rolling pin. You can do it the similar way like the Pizza base. It can be a little heavy.
Heat a griddle and place the rolled out dough on it and cook for a minute.When bubbles start appearing , now flip it over to the other side. Apply butter over in this side. let it cook for a minute. Flip and apply butter this side as well, let it cook for a minute, you can see brownish color dots.
Serve it hot with Yogurt , pickle. Enjoy the healthy paratha 🙂
