Measuring cup used 1 cup = 250ml

  • 1 medium ripened avocado (butterfruit) pulp comes to around ½ cup
  • 1 cup whole wheat or multigrain flour
  • ¼ teaspoon ajwain (carrom seeds) (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon grated ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed black pepper or red chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin (jeera) powder
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon coriander (cilantro) finely chopped

Instructions

  • Peel the avocado skin and cut it horizontally with a sharp knife carefully. Then, scoop out the pulp from it.

  • Add the spices - ajwain, red chili powder or black pepper powder, cumin seed powder, coriander leaves, and salt. Add lemon juice and mix well.
    *Don't skip adding lemon to avocados. Otherwise, the mixture will turn brown.

    knead the dough
  • Knead to a smooth dough, adding little water if required. Cover and let it rest for 15 minutes.

  • Make balls from the dough. I was able to get six balls. Take a ball and flatten it—dust with flour and roll into a big circle.

  • Heat a tawa/skillet on medium heat and place the paratha and let it cook.

  • Once you see bubbles, flip to the other side drizzle some ghee or oil on top.
    Flip again and drizzle oil or ghee on the other side until they have nice golden spots on both sides.

Notes

Tips & Variations:

  • If you are vegan, then skip ghee and use any cooking oil.
  • You can also add some chopped mint and garam masala powder for extra flavor.
  • Don't skip adding lemon to avocados, they will turn brown otherwise.
  • You can also add finely chopped/pureed spinach or methi leaves (fenugreek leaves) for a healthier variation. If you are making for kids then you can even add some cheese.
 

How to pack paratha for lunch box?

  • Do not pack hot paratha in a closed box. It will get soggy. Place the cooked paratha on a paper towel, apply ghee/butter. Let it cool a little. Then pack it along with the paper towel.I personally stopped wrapping parathas or roti in aluminium foil these days since its not considered healthy.
