Avocado Parathas

>> Friday, February 15, 2008

Now this sounds something different right. Well, before i start of with my recipe, i have to thank Mrs. Indira of Mahanandi for posting this wonderful recipe. I tried it, loved it like anything else.
Whenever we goto mexican restaurants, we have Guacamole served with Dorito's as an appetizer. It took sometime for me to get used to the taste, but now i love it. Other day i came across an article about avocado that says how good avocado is for human body. It came as a surprise to me that eating avocado at least thrice a week is much better than surviving on a low-fat diet for people with cholesterol and is an excellent source of fiber. I seriously wanted to increase our intake of this fruit and that is when i came across this wonderful recipe by Indira. Here the recipe goes:
Ingredients:
Avocado - 1
Wheat flour - 3-4 cups
Salt - 1tsp
Water/milk
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds (optional) - 1/2 tsp

Preparation :
Take the avocado, cut it to half, take the seed off and with a small knife scoop off the insides of the avocado on both halves. Take this to a bowl and mash it well to a fine paste. Now, to the wheat flour, add some salt, cumin seeds, chilli powder, mashed avocado and kneed to smooth dough adding water or milk. I prefer to use warm milk for parathas as they make the parathas much softer. Rest the dough for 30-40mins. Now take portions of the dough and roll into round shaped parathas. Heat the tava, place the paratha on the griddle and allow one side to cook till it becomes golden brown color, now flip the paratha and allow the other side to cook. Add some ghee/oil. Repeat the same for all the parathas.


Finally serve with subzi of your choice.
