        Though I have cooked with avacado before, it was not a regular thing in my kitchen.My hubby who has just realised how healthy avacados are buys them often nowadays. I have made this rotis couple of times and everyone loves it.Even my choosy kid loves them!!

avacado recipes
Method-
      Cut the avacado vertically in half. Deseed and scoop out the pulp from it. Mash it with a masher or using a fork. Now add the spice powders and salt followed by the whole wheat flour. Mix well and form a soft and firm dough. Just add a few drops of water if necessary or if the dough is too dry. Add oil and knead it again to smooth dough.
       Heat a tava or a girdle.Now make lemon sized balls with the dough. Roll them into a thick circle. Place the circle on the hot tava. When brown spots appear at the bottom , flip on the other side and cook. Brush some ghee on both sides. Flip again to cook properly on both sides. Place it on a tissue lined in a hotpot if you are not serving immediately. Repeat the same with rest of the dough.
        Serve hot with some gravy, pickle or even spiced curds, raitha etc.
Notes-
Add some ajwain or saunf (fennel seeds) while kneading the dough.
