I had come across this unique flatbread at Indira's Mahanandi during my pre-blogging days. She had come across this recipe at GM's "The Spice is right". I was really impressed with this fusion cooking. Since then, I have been making my version of Avocado Parathas.
Avocado Paratha - (Count 7 - 9)
1 ripe avocado, peeled & pitted
salt to taste
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chile powder
1 clove garlic, peeled & grated
3 tbsp minced cilantro
1 tsp lemon juice
3/4 - 1 cup wheat flour
3 tbsp - 1/4 cup water
Oil - as needed for roasting
Rice flour or wheat flour - as needed, for dredging
1. Mash avocado so there are no lumps. Mix in salt, cumin powder, turmeric powder, chile powder, grated garlic, cilantro and lemon juice.
2. Add wheat flour and mix together. Do not add water initially. Add water as needed to knead into a smooth dough ball.
3. Make 7 - 9 uniform balls.
4. Roll into thick parathas/flabtbreads dredging into rice or wheat flour as needed.
5. Heat a pan or griddle. Roast each flatbread, adding very little oil for roasting.
6. Cover in a clean, kitchen towel - till ready to serve.
1. Above proportion gives me about 7 - 9 parathas. This count will vary depending on the diameter of the parathas.
