Total Time 28 minutes
Servings 10 parathas


  • Avocado – 1 very ripe
  • Whole wheat flour/Atta – 2 cups
  • Roasted cumin powder – 1 ½ tsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Chili powder – ½ tsp
  • Garam masala – ½ tsp optional
  • Minced garlic – 1 clove
  • Lime juice – 1 tsp
  • Chopped cilantro – few
  • Oil – to make parathas


  1. In a large bowl, take the flesh out of the Avocado. To take the flesh out, cut the Avocado all the way through in the center and then rotate it a couple of times to open it. With a knife go down on the pit and remove it using couple of gentle twirls around. After that run a spoon on the sides of the Avocado and you will notice that the flesh scoops out easily leaving behind empty Avocado skin.
  2. To the scooped flesh, add the lime juice, salt, chili powder, cumin powder, and garam masala. Also add the chopped cilantro and mash everything up well with your hands.  Lime juice is added to prevent oxidizing of the Avocados, so do not omit it.
  3. To this mixture slowly add the wheat flour and make it into smooth dough. Do not add any water. The moisture in the avocado will be enough to form the dough. If in case at the end you feel that the dough is little too dry, add couple of tbsps of water to bring it together. Cover the bowl and leave it aside for about 30 mins.
  4. Divide the dough into 10 equal balls and roll them out into parathas.
  5. Cook them on a heated griddle, using little oil on both the sides.
