Avocado - Soy Flour Rotis

This is going to be my final day "Fruit" themed entry for blogging marathon #9. Check what other marathoners are cooking today.
So far, I blogged the following recipes with "Soups/Salads" theme for the first round and "Cooking with Fruits" for the second one.

1. Broccoli - Cheese Soup
2. Black-eyed Peas Soup
3. Corn Soup
4. Cracked Wheat Salad
5. Custard Fruit Salad
6. Black bean - Carrot Soup
7. Tomato - Basil Salad

1. Lemon Gojju
2. Strawberry Yogurt
3. Jackfruit Halwa
4. Eggless Apple Cake
5. Eggless Mango - Semolina Bread
6. Fruit Salad with Mango Sauce

Now to avocado - soy flour rotis. I sometimes add avocado to the roti dough since it adds softness to the rotis. This time in went the soy flour as well to make them more nutritious. The result was yummy rotis that were softer even by the next morning. Rolling is not difficult with the soy - wheat flours combo but the edges would be jagged. Do not worry about not getting perfect shaped rotis, the softness compensates it. :) And I feel that a spicy curry masks the flavor of soyflour (in case if it is noticed). Or the quantity of soy flour can be reduced  to 1/2 cup.

Ingredients for 10 rotis:
1 Avocado
1 cup Soy flour
1 cup Wheat flour (atta)
Salt to taste
2 Tbsp cilantro leaves + 1 tsp cumin seeds (optional)
Oil to toast the rotis

* Peel the avocado, remove the seed and cut into chunks.
* Add the avocado and about 1/4 cup water to a food processor / blender and puree it.
* If using the processor. add the flours, cilantro, cumin seeds and salt to the avocado and pulse it a few times so that the whole mixture combines. Transfer the dough from the food processor to a mixing bowl, add a few Tbsp of water if needed and form a firm, rollable dough. Cover and let it rest for atleast 30 minutes. If you used the blender to puree it, add this to a bowl, combine the flours and work with the dough with your hand.

* Divide the dough into 10 portions and shape each one into a ball. Take one dough ball, flatten it slightly and roll into a circle as thin as possible.
Heat a shallow pan / tawa and toast the rolled out dough circle flipping in between and adding 1/4 tsp along the edges. Toast until it  appears cooked and there are brown spots on either side.

* Repeat the same with the remaining dough. Serve with some spicy curry.
This is going to Susan's MLLA, 40th edition hosted by me this month.

Good one..Back home my mom adds about 25% soy to wheat and sends it to the mill. This reminds me of the time we ate rotis at home :)

Archana said...
