Avocado Roti

Avocado roti will sure be a keeper in your house. I was quite thrilled when I first made these rotis. These are very soft, and delicious. You can just have these rotis by themselves without any curry. This is very healthy way of replacing butter or oil in rotis. Vice versa is not true, this is not a healthy way of eating avocado. Some nutrients in avocado are lost when you cook.


1 cup wheat flour (preferably whole grain, unbleached)

1 ripe avocado

½ tsp of salt

Warm water as needed (about 3-4 tbsp)

Mix the flour with salt then add the avocado to the flour and mix thoroughly. Now slowly add water to make firm dough, I used about 3-4 tbsp of warm water to bring the dough to this consistency. Make sure that dough is not too soft or too hard.

Knead the dough for two minutes. Cover and set it aside to rest for about 15 to 30 minutes.

Rolling out Chapatis:

Take small lime sized portions and shape them into balls.

Sprinkle some flour on clean board. Using a rolling pin, press/roll out the dough into a big thin round. Even for novice roti maker, once you blend avocado, rotis roll out very easily. To get layers, fold the rolled out round twice, to get a triangle shape then roll into a big, thin triangle.

Cooking Roti:

Heat a cast-iron griddle, when it is hot, place the roti and cook it on each side until golden.

Serve hot with curry or dal.
This goes well with No oil eggplant soy curry, creamy greens, eggplant and mango saute, broccoli and pea saute.
