Avocado Parathas (flat bread) – No Knead!

Suhoor (breakfast) is a big affair at my parent's home (I'm talking a three course meal, eat until you are throwing up atmosphere) but my husband and in-laws are the complete opposite. In fact, I think in the six years of our marriage, I might have made suhoor for my husband only a handful of times! So, as sad as it sounds, I make suhoor for only my lonely self 🙁 BUT, Ramadan is the one month of the year when I cook for myself. Because I have my blog this year, I want to share some healthy and filling suhoor recipes with YOU (mostly so that I am not as lonely during suhoor this year, haha!) starting with this Avocado Paratha (flat bread) recipe

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt (This is low salt. Increase if you prefer more salt)
  • 0.25 teaspoon green chilli paste (This is not very spicy. Increase if you prefer spicier.)
  • 0.25 teaspoon citric acid (alternative: 0.5 teaspoon lemon juice)
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 0.25 cup boiling water
  • Extra flour to sprinkle when rolling
  • oil and butter for cooking
  1. Mash your avocado with the back of a fork until it turns into a paste like consistency

  2. Mix all of the remaining ingredients (except for the water) with the avocado paste. This will turn the flour crumbly

  3. Add your boiling water little at a time using a spoon to mix. My brand of whole wheat flour required ¼ cup to form into a smooth, soft dough ball. Yours might require more or less so add cautiously

  4. Once the water cools a bit, switch to your hands to form a dough ball. There is no need to knead the dough as it should come together very quickly. The dough will be very soft and delicate to deal with, similar to margarine texture

  5. Let dough rest for 15 minutes covered

  6. Preheat a non-stick pan on medium low heat

  7. Form equal size dough balls, this will make 5 flatbreads/parathas

  8. Use loose flour to roll out each ball of dough. Be patient, it might be hard to work with due to the dough being so delicate. This is due to the addition of avocado

  9. Cook on medium low heat until small brown spots appear

  10. I added oil during the cooking process but this is optional

  11. Top with butter or ghee (optional)

  12. Enjoy as a healthy suhoor option with some yogurt and tea!
