My youngest is in love with Roti. Give her roti and yogurt and she will happily eat it all day. Unfortunately, there’s not much nutrition in plain rotis (well, some fiber I suppose and lots of carbs. And they do taste really good. So I’ve been coming up with ways to make roti that will satisfy her roti cravings as well as make me happy that I’m feeding her something nutritious.
These avocado rotis are one of my better creations I think. The girls loved the green color of the roti, there was just a hint of avocado in it without overpowering it, and even if the girls didn’t eat any sabzi (veggies) on the side, at least they were still getting some in their roti.
Wait….avocado is a fruit – what veggies are you talking about? Yes it is, but there’s a secret ingredient in here that no one suspected. Drumroll please……..
Spinach! Yep, not even my husband figured out there was spinach in these rotis. I actually had been struggling with this recipe for a while because I had the flavor profile down but they wouldn’t stay green once I added the flour to the avocados and a certain ratio was necessary otherwise, it would change the essence of the roti. I happened to also be making spinach dal – another favorite of my youngest – and thought, why not add some spinach to the roti dough. Worth a shot. And what a shot let me tell you. It gave the green color I was looking for, added some extra fiber and calcium. Like I said, win-win!
Try it and tell me what you think!
From my kitchen to yours, I really hope you enjoy this one.
