Avocado Paratha
Soft Avocado Parathaa
When I came to know the health benefits of avocado (Known as Butter fruit in India) , I wanted to try some recipes with it. I tried a milk shake & it was too bitter in taste. Sine then I started running miles away when I see avocado in shops.Then I found ripe avocado wont taste bitter. Again I browsed for some other recipes and came across this post. She has given the title as “super soft Avocado paratha” . 

I tried on the same day and yes it was really super soft. So I too gave the same title. I made little changes in the actual recipe according to our taste. Thanks a lot Shoba for helping me with this recipe. This paratha would be ideal for travel & lunch box.  You can make it thick like paratha or as thin chapathi. I made a simple onion raita and pickle as side dish. You can also make some tomato chutney or thokku. Please try this recipe only if you have ripe avocado in hand. 

Please don’t take chance in trying with raw ones. It will taste bitter to the core. Ok, lets see how to make super soft avocado paratha at home. You can make this paratha recipe for your healthy breakfast or dinner !

Cuisine: Indian
Category: Avocado Recipes
Serves: Serves 2
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 5 Minutes
Total time: 15 Minutes


  • Wheat flour – 1 cup
  • Fully Ripen avocado – 1 no ( pulpy ones)
  • Big onion – 2 nos ( Grated)
  • Green chillies – 2 nos ( Finely chopped)
  • Garlic cloves – 7-8 nos ( Grated)
  • Coriander leaves – Few(finely chopped)
  • Ajwain/Omam or cumin seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Garam masala powder – 1 tsp
  • Salt – as needed
  • Lemon juice – 2 tsp
  • Water – Very little ( 1-2 tbsp), Add only if needed
  • Cooking Oil – Little to make parathas


  1. Cut the ripe avocado into two and take out the seed.
  2. Remove the pulp using a spoon.
  3. In a bowl ,grate the onion, garlic cloves. Finely chop green chillies.
  4. Mix everything with the avocado pulp and add the required salt, cumin seeds/ajwain, garam masala powder ,coriander leaves.
  5. Mix all the ingredients to the wheat flour and make a dough.
  6. Add very little water if needed.Say a tbsp or two.
  7. Take a lemon sized ball and roll thick or thin paratha by dusting in the wheat flour.
  8. Heat a dosa pan and make paratha pouring little oil around it. Cook both sides till brown spots appear.Remove it.
  9. Serve hot with a simple onion raita or pickle !


  • Add water carefully. If the quantity of pulp is more, you don’t need to add water at all.
  • You can cook adding few drops of ghee to make it flavorful.
  • Garam masala powder is not used in the actual recipe. But I used it.
  • This paratha is soft by itself, no need to add butter milk or besan flour. No issue if even they are added.
  • Please use ripe , pulpy avocado. If you use raw ones,paratha will taste bitter.
  • One avocado is sufficient for the above recipe.
