Avocado Paratha (Mexican Avacado dip Flat Bread) 【牛油果煎饼】

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 loves.

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.

2 杯 全麦面粉
1/2 - 2/3 杯 墨西哥牛油果沾酱 (Guacamole)
1/4 小勺 盐
1/4 小勺 姜黄粉 Optional
1/2 小勺 孜然 optional
1 小勺 芫荽粉 optional
水 适量 (大约 1/2 杯,或少于1/2杯,由剩余的Guacamole份量决定)
一些手粉 (面粉)

1. 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.

1. 把所有材料加适量的水和成一个软硬适中的面团。用一块干净的布盖着饧面20分钟。

2. 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.

3. 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.

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

5. 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!

2. 十分钟后,揪出小baby拳头大的剂子,沾上面粉,擀成一个CD那么大的圆饼。

3. 喷一层或抹上一层薄薄的油。对折再对折成三角形。轻轻擀开,成大约 2mm 厚。

4. 热上一口平底锅,中火,两面烙成金黄色。(注:也可用油煎熟。比较不健康就是了。
