I make chappathis/rotis for dinner or lunch at least thrice a week. My husband is not a big fan of chappathis. So I try other healthier alternatives. But whenever I make rotis I try to throw in other ingredients in it as well. Anything I could get my hands on will go right in the dough 😉 It’s usually methi leaves. This time I wanted to try with avocados and the results were amazing.
Adding avocados in rotis makes them very very soft. It’s a good way to introduce avocados to kids. If you don’t like eating raw avocados, this will be an easier and tastier option.
|Makes : 8 rotis||Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 15 mins|
|Whole wheat flour||2 cups|
|Red chilli powder||1 tsp|
|Garam masala powder||1/2 tsp|
|Turmeric powder||1/4 tsp|
|Cumin seeds||1 tsp|
|Oil (For drizzling)||1 tbsp|
- Cut the avocados in half, discard the seed and scoop out the flesh.
- Measure and add whole wheat flour with salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder and cumin seeds.
- Mash the scooped out avocado flesh well with your hands. Alternatively, you can also pulse them in a mixer. Whatever method you choose, make sure to pulse them without any lumps.
- Now add the mashed avocados to the dough mix and make a crumbly mixture.
- Now add water little by little until a smooth dough is formed.
- Divide the dough into 8 equal-sized balls. Roll out each dough ball into a circle.
- The dough will be very soft. So don’t roll out the rotis very thin as it will easily tear.
- Heat a pan and place the rolled out dough on it. Drizzle some oil.
- Cook for a minute and flip over. Let it cook for another minute.
- Serve the Avocado rotis with gravy of your choice or with just a pickle 🙂
