Avocado and Fenugreek leaves Indian Flatbread ! Avocado and Methi Paratha

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

It is so easy to make New Years resolutions to eat healthy and keep fit, but it's even easier to break them! I've made vows to eat healthy in the last year, though it seems I can not stick to my plans...especially when you are witnessing heavy snowfall for days and craving some fried, hot and tasty food..:P

Although I am sticking to my healthy eating habits and cooking healthy hot meals for family, a few days back we all craved Parathas for brunch so when I announced that we can have parathas, everyone was very happy and offered their help in the kitchen and we prepared Avocado and Methi parathas in less than an hour..enjoyed and devoured parathas with dry potato bhaji and yogurt.

Parathas are known to be very fatty so although I enjoy them, the guilt is still there. I then designed a recipe where I can make a very tasty paratha without the aid of too much oil - through adding Avocado. In doing this, the paratha came out delicious so there is no compromise on taste yet the goodness of avocado compliments the parathas.



You will need :-
  • 3 cup whole wheat flour ( roti atta )
  • 1/2 cup chick pea flour ( optional )
  • 2 ripe avocado
  • 1 cup methi ( fenugreek ) leaves cleaned, washed and finely chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh coriander leaves finely chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp crushed green chillies and ginger
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds
  • Few tablespoon oil for shallow frying


Method :-
Take out the flesh of the avocado and puree in a blender, so there will be no chunks of avocados in your dough.
Transfer the avocado puree in big bowl and add all the ingredients except oil.
Mix everything with your hands, at this point do not add any water.
Keep mixing and form a dough, if you think the dough needs water, add few tablespoons of water and knead the dough.
Leave a dough aside covered with kitchen towel.
Divide the dough in a equal size balls.
Roll out ball on a flat surface in dry flour and make a round paratha.
Shallow fry on a hot griddle or tava till both sides are equally golden brown..
Serve hot with potato dry bhaji, pickle and yogurt.
