Guacamole Paratha (Mexican Avacado dip Flat Bread)

Guacamole with corn chips is a snack I frequently prepared for guests. As many of my friends are either vegetarian, or vegetarian wannabe. And I often left with some guacamole that I have no heart to throw away. This yummy avocado dip is packed with good fat and nutrients that our body love.

So I turned it into paratha and to my delight, it is so soft and tasty! Not to mention being super healthy!

2 cups Wholewheat or multigrains flour
1/2 - 2/3 cup of Guacamole
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder Optional
1/2 tsp Cumin optional
1 tsp Coriander powder optional
Water enough to make the dough (approximately 1/2 cup or lesser,depending on the quantity of Guacamole.)

Oil spray/vegetable or olive oil
Some flour for dusting.

Knead together all ingredients listed with enough water to form a soft dough. Cover with slightly damp paper towel and let it rest for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, divide the dough into small balls around baby's fist size. Dust with flour and roll it into a disk size flat bread.

Spray or lightly spread a thin layer of vegetable oil/olive oil over the flat bread, and fold it into half, and then another half to form a triangle shape.

Press and lightly roll it out to a 2 mm thick triangle flat bread.

Heat up a tawa/cooking pan at medium heat, cook/roast the Paratha both sides with or without oil depending on your healthy consciousness, it is done when both sides turn golden brown.

You could serve this bread with some pickle, chutney or any curry or vegetable you prepare for the day!

It is super soft and yummy! Highly recommended!
