version with both avocado and soy flour. I must try this. My sort of challenge!
In the Night Garden before bed. The remaining dough went in the fridge.
pea and lentil salad, Yaz rolled and fried the roti, while keeping a small child away. He advised that we dry fry and brush with melted ghee, or, as in my case, butter. I had fried them with a spay of oil the previous night. He looked up atta flour that was in the recipe and found that my substitution of bread flour and wholemeal flours was quite appropriate for this strong flour.
It was raining so heavily when we went shopping that we couldn't park near my favourite Turkish bread shop so I had to buy a teeny one at the supermarket. As it was, with the remains of the pumpkin bread, we had plenty. With the vegies, dips, coconut bacon and rotis, it was a far too much for us. A very pleasant lunch and I was pleased that Sylvia enjoyed eating the roti.
pizza for dinner. The next day was a birthday lunch for my nieces, Grace and Ella. The rotis were finished but the sun shone and my mum made us an excellent Mexican feast. I helped the girls make a special birthday cake. More about that soon.
tortilla recipe so I might try it soon. I think there will also be more rotis soon in our house. I have noticed that Suma has posted some potato rotis at Veggie Platter as well. I am sending these rotis to Simone of Briciole for My Legume Love Affair #41, founded by Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook. I found these rotis via the last edition of MLLA and hope someone else might discover them in this round up.

Avocado Soy Rotis
Adapted from Veggie Platter with good advice from My Indian Food
Makes 10 rotis
1/4 cup water
1 cup soy flour
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 cup white bread flour
1/2 tsp salt flakes
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp mustard powder
oil or melted ghee/butter for rotis to fry the rotis
Place avocado pulp and 1/4 cup water in a food processor and blend, scraping down a few times. Add flours, salt and spices. Continue to process until a greenish ball of dough forms. Add a little extra water if needed.
Cover for at least 20 minutes or leave overnight in the fridge wrapped in clingwrap. Cut dough into 10 small pieces.
Roll out each piece - my dough was on the sticky side so it needed quite a bit of flour.
Fry on a medium to hot frypan until the dough puffs slightly and brown spots appear on the underside. This should only take a minute or two. The first lot I did I sprayed the pan with oil (see photo).
The second lot I did, we dry-fried and then brushed with melted butter. Serve warm.
