Avocado chapatis 

Avocados are good for you but also have a rich, buttery flavor that's rarely found in healthy foods. Although they are relatively high in fat and calories, avocados are loaded with beneficial fats,vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Chapati is flat bread found all over India and most of the Eastern world. This bread is usually made of whole wheat, all purpose flour or a combination of both. Chapatis can be rolled out into flat rounds, or layered into parathas/layered bread (recipe here)

What you need: Yields about 12 chapatis
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 ripe avocado
1/4 cup warm milk
½ tsp salt
A few spoons of olive oil
To layer and dust: A cup of wheat flour and a ¼ cup oil
 
Cut the avocados in half. Seed and scoop out the pulp. Add it into a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Beat it down to a fine paste. Add warm milk and salt to it at regular intervals. Once the avocado forms a smooth paste, change the attachment to a dough blade hook. 

Add in little amounts of flour and mix until you get a medium pliable dough. Add warm water if needed to get the right consistency. Add 2 tsp of olive oil and mix the dough one last time to coat the dough in oil. Set aside to rest for a few minutes. 


Divide the dough equally into 12 lemon sized balls. On a rolling board, or flat surface, dip a dough ball in a little flour dust, and roll it out evenly to form a palm sized flat round bread. Dust the surface with sufficient flour to prevent it from sticking to the surface. 

Heat a flat skillet or pan on medium high, when it starts to smoke, reduce the heat to medium and flip a rolled chapati on it. Turn it around a couple of times and flip it over until it puffs and gains a golden brown color. You may add a little olive oil just before you take it off the pan. It makes the outer layer crisp. 

Let the chapatis cool down. Add a scoop of the cooked ground turkey. Roll the bread tightly and wrap with cling wrap. Serve them for dinner or pack them into lunch boxes. Enjoy!
