Do you say roti or rotli?
It's a matter of where you and your family originate from, but neither is wrong! I grew up calling this thin everyday flatbread rotli because my family originates from Gujarat, India. However, in most other parts of India the name for it is "Roti". It is also the same word that is used throughout Indonesia, Africa, and the Caribbean. However you like to eat your Roti, there is one thing that we all love about it... the thin, soft, and delicious comfort it brings to our hearts.
How to make healthy roti
You can add many different things to your flour to make the roti healthy for you. This can include veggies, fibers, or even extra protein. The possibilities are endless. If you want to venture out into other options, then be sure to check out my zucchini roti recipe or carrot roti recipe. Both are perfect for kids and adults!
Can roti be given to babies?
Of course! It is a great finger food if you are practicing baby led weaning. My little ones loved eating roti and foods with texture. My tip when it comes to feeding babies roti is to dip the whole roti in water once it is cooked so it will soften the roti. Then you can tear it into small pieces and offer it to your baby. This particular Avocado Roti turns out to cook very soft which makes me believe it is the best option out there to give. Includes healthy fats from avocado and whole grains from wheat flour.
What are avocados in Hindi?
This is the same exact word used in Hindi, Avocado. When I travel to India and speak of avocado, not many natives know what I am referring to. However, Avocados are readily available in many parts of India but you just have to find the right place to go to.
Avocado in India
If you are traveling across India, it might be a bit hard to find avocados. Try going to specialty market that specializes in international fruits and veggies. They are readily available in many parts of India but usually at a higher cost.
Can Avocado be cooked?
Yes! I debated this one too many times before attempting to make this Avocado Roti recipe. The texture of whole wheat atta roti is soft and very tasty! I highly recommend it.
What are some Avocado Indian Recipes
I personally think this is the one that every household needs to try. It is a great everyday food that is packed with healthy fats, carbs, and fiber. Some other ways to use Avocado in Indian Recipes is to make a salad out of it using garlic, jeera, and other spices.
What type of whole wheat should I use?
Any whole grain whole wheat flour works well. I personally love to find an organic variation because that meets my family's health needs. Try this brand or any other variation available at your local Indian Grocery Store.
How to make Indian Avocado Roti: Step by Step Instructions
Avocado Indian Roti Recipe
- 1 medium avocado
- 1.5 cups whole wheat flour (I use 24 mantra brand organic flour)
- 1 tablespoon oil of choice
- 1 tablespoon flax seeds, grounded
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds, grounded
- 2-3 tablespoon hot water (amount depends on dough preference)
- 1 tablespoon ghee
- all purpose flour for dusting
- salt (I add ¼ tsp)
- Additional spices (jalapenos, garlic, turmeric, black pepper, etc)
- Mix all of the contents, except ghee, together and kneed into a dough. TIP: You can use a kitchen mixer if you prefer.
- Add the ghee and knead the dough one final time to make the dough smooth.
- Divide the dough into equal parts. I make a total of 12 thin rotli or 10 thicker ones. The size can vary based on your liking.
- Heat a flat plan on medium high heat.
- Roll out a rotli and then place onto the pan (be sure the pan is hot before placing the rotli on it).
- In about 20 seconds flip the rotli over.
- Cook for about 30-40 seconds on the second side and then flip over again OR roast over an open flame.
- HOW TO INFLATE THE ROTLI: As you see small bubbles form, push on them gently with your hand, tongs, or even the bottom of a the pan (authentic grandma method) to give pressure. This will help inflate the rest of the rotli.
- Stack on top of a napkin and top with ghee, butter, or enjoy as is. TIP: They stay hot and soft if stacked one on top of another.
- Serve warm.
- Enjoy! Happy Eating, Folks!
