AVOCADO,DATES AND QUINOA PARATHA (Sweet,soft and highly nutritious paratha)

This is a very healthy and highly nutritious paratha.

Actually, this paratha was a result of emptying left overs. There was some cooked quinoa and fully riped avocado waiting to get finished.So I thought of combining it together with some dates and made parathas.The parathas came out good.Avocados made it super soft,dates gave a slight sweetness and quinoa made it extra healthy.We enjoyed this sweet,soft and highly nutritious parathas that it vanished fast.As always no left overs in refrigerator and making a healthy dish made me happy :)

Quinoa-----------------------1 cup (cooked)
Dates------------------------1/4 cup,mashed
Wheat flour-----------------2 cups or as needed
Salt -------------------------- a pinch
Olive oil or ghee----------1 tsp


  1. Mash avocado and dates together and keep it aside.
  2. Now in a bowl take wheat flour and add a pinch of salt to it.Then add mashed avocados and dates followed by cooked quinoa.Knead the dough well by adding extra flour.Add a tsp of olive oil or ghee in palm to prevent stickiness and knead it good.
  3. Keep the dough aside for 10 minutes.
  4. Now make parathas as usual. (Make small dumplings and then roll it flat using a rolling pin with some extra dry flour in it.Then heat a griddle and cook the parathas in both side).
  5. Enjoy this sweet,soft and highly nutritious parathas.
Note: You don't have to use water for kneading the dough as the mashed avocado and dates has enough moisture in it.
