Avocado Roti/Chapati

Have you ever heard of the term: ‘Super Foods’? Avocados feature almost on the top of this list. Avocados contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol. They are also a
good source of potassium, a mineral that helps regulate blood pressure. One cup of avocado has 23% of the Daily Value for folate, a nutrient important for heart health. I did know that eating avocado was healthy for you, but I didn’t realize that it would taste so good. That it would have the effects of adding butter to food that was made. I had this epiphany only after I made Avocado Roti. Yes, it tasted like it was butter roti. This is possibly the softest, most tender roti I have ever had. If you try it once, you will never give up.

2 medium avocados
1/2 cup yogurt
3 cups chapati flour
warm water as needed

Halve and scoop the flesh from the avocado. Place it a blender and puree it with the 1/2 cup of yogurt and salt. Remove the pulp into a bowl. Use a 1/4 cup of the warm water to rinse the blender. To this puree add the chapati flour and knead. You may or may not need more water depending on the brand of flour. Knead to a soft and pliable dough. Let it rest, covered for 10-15 minutes. Divide into small balls. Roll into thin discs and cook on a hot griddle. You will not need even a single drop of oil for this recipe. The fats in the avocado do all the work for you. Flip over and cook the roti on the other side. Stack the cooked rotis between aluminium foil to keep warm. Serve hot with curry of choice.

Verdict: I guess I said everything about how it tasted in the beginning itself. Anyway..my husband said this is the best flat bread I have made to date…nothing I did deserved this comment…it goes to the flavor in the avocado..The addition of yogurt adds to the tenderness and the acidity in the yogurt keeps the dough from turning brown.
