Avocado-Palak Roti

By Pavani @napavani

Blogging Marathon# 66: Week 3/ Day 1 Theme: Kid's Delight -- Lunch Box Recipes
Dish: Bean Burrito with Potatoes
For the final day of this week's marathon, I have a healthy roti for the kids lunchbox. I was planning to make Nalini's Avocado roti but then had some baby spinach in the fridge that needed to be used up, so that's how these avocado-spinach rotis were born.
Avocado Spinach Flatbread Avocados are very healthy and provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, vitamin E and folic acids. I like it quite a bit but my husband is allergic to it, so I usually eat it by myself but never make it for the family. But I wanted to at least see how the kids like it.
Avocados make these rotis very very soft and stay that way for a very long time, which makes them perfect for packing for lunch. I followed Nalini's recipe and added some spices to the rotis, you don't really need a side dish. I served with pickle for myself but my son had them with some cheese.
