Avocado Paratha


Avocado is one of my favorite fruit and after hearing its healthy benefits, I started buying them regurlaly. My frequent take with Avocado is Guacamole in Indian style. In our home we love this as side dish for chappati, put it in bread and do Guacamole Sandwich, few Mexican style dishes like Burrito and Quesadilla. Every since I saw Avocada Paratha in my friend Malar’s space, I wanted to try but somehow I kept postponing Finally I did it, and I regretted for delaying it, softest paratha I ever tasted. Now a days once a week I am doing this

Avocado Paratha

Preparation time : 10 mins | Standing time : 30 mins – 1 hour | Serves : 2


Whole wheat Flour – 1 cup

Avocado – 2, small; ripe avocado pitted and mashed

Pepper powder – 1/8 tsp

Coriander Powder – 1/2 tsp

Cumin Powder – 1/4 tsp

Lemon juice – 1/2 tsp

Oil – 1 tsp

Salt – as needed



  • In a  bowl mash avocado and add lime juice; mix well. Add wheat, oil, salt, pepper powder, coriander powder and cumin powder to the mashed avocado pulp; combine well and make a pliable dough. Moisture in avocado should be enough to make dough but if the required add 1-2 tsp of water. Cover it with damp cloth and leave it for 30 mins – 1 hour


  • Take small portions of dough and make small balls; roll it with rolling pin, dusting wheat flour. Heat a griddle and when it is hot, place the rolled paratha. and cook for a minute or so till the chappati starts puffing , flip it over to the other side. Cook till the other side cooks

avocado paratha


My Notes:

  • Can add onion, garlic or any other Masala like garam masala, pav bhaji masala etc. for flavors
  • I didn’t use oil while cooking the paratha but you can drizzle some oil/ghee/butter
  • Instead of lemon juice Apple Cider Vinegar can be used to prevent Avocado from changing color
  • Can add 1 tbsp of yogurt instead of oil while making dough

    I love avocado and I love paratha so this recipe is so for me! I’ve never been able to make my paratha puff. I have the same problem with real tortillas. I think practice makes perfect and I’m so trying this! Have a great weekend.

    I’ve never had paratha before but I it looks like it would be delicious for dipping or as a wrap? It doesn’t look to difficult to make with your excellent instructions either.
