Avocado Paratha

Avocado Paratha or call ‘Avocado Chapati’ is a unique way of preparing nutritious flatbread without using any oil. Flatbread recipes are nothing out of the ordinary, but one with no added fat is something special and definitely worth sharing with my friends.

  • Peel the avocado skin and cut it horizontally with a sharp knife and scoop out the pulp from it.
    3 avocados
  • Mash the pulp with a fork or a potato masher.
  • Add the spices – cumin powder, coriander powder, and salt.
    ½ teaspoon cumin powder, ½ teaspoon coriander powder, Salt to taste
  • Follow up with lemon juice and mix well.
  • Now, add whole wheat flour and mix well.
    2 ½ cup wheat flour
  • Knead the dough to a smooth consistency adding just a little water if required.
    1 tablespoon water
  • Cover and let it rest for 15 minutes.
  • Prepare balls from the dough to prep them for parathas.
  • Take a ball and flatten it as you also dust it with flour. Roll it into a 2 mm thick circle.
  • Heat up a tawa/skillet on medium heat and place the paratha and let it cook.
  • When you find bubbles forming on the surface, press it gently with a clean towel or a ladle and flip it over to the other side.
  • Continue to cook the other side and repeat the procedure.
  • Remove the paratha from the skillet and apply oil, if you prefer to.
  • Avocado Paratha is ready! Serve it hot paired with your favorite side dish for a sumptuous meal!



  • Chopped mint leaves or cilantro could be added for additional flavors if preferred.
  • Adding garam masala powder to the dough mix is another option to get some extra flavor.
  • Be sure not to skip adding lemon to avocados to avoid them from turning brown.
  • Add any green leaf puree like spinach, or kale for a healthier variation.
  • You could also add grated ginger and garlic for extra flavor. I prefer keeping it simple without adding them.
