Avocado Roti

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 rotisPrep time: 10 mins Cook time: 15 mins
Whole wheat flour2 cups
Red chilli powder1 tsp
Garam masala powder1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds1 tsp
Salt1 tsp
WaterAs needed
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 🙂
