Method:
To make the dough…

Make a flavored dough using ripe avocado, minced garlic, minced JalapeƱo, finely chopped onions, salt, red chili pwdr, chopped cilantro and a sprinkling of shredded cheese. You can also make the dough using water instead, if avocados are not available.

Divide dough into small lemon size balls.
image image
To make the filling…
Cook store bought chunky salsa…
image
till it reduces to become a thick paste.
image
Add a little sugar to balance flavors from the reduction.
image
Rolling out the roti/Parantha…
To make 1 stuffed roti…you will need 2 such balls of dough.
Roll each ball out into a thin circle.
image
Now on one circle, spread a thin layer of salsa filling.
image
Sprinkle some grated cheese (I used Mexican blend)
image
Top with the other circle of dough.
image
Press across outer edges with your finger tips to seal.
image
Using your fingers….pat to flatten.
image
Then use a rolling pin to roll it into a thin roti. Be careful to not tear the dough while rolling..or the filling might spill out!
image
Cooking the roti/Parantha…
Transfer roti to hot Tawa.
image
Cook till golden. I did not use any oil to cook these, as the rich natural oils from the avocado (used to make the dough) were sufficient to roast the rotis. However if you are not using avocado in the dough, use a few drops of oil, to cook the rotis.
image
Serve these stuffed roti/paranthas while still warm….they taste best while the cheese is warm and melty.
image image
However if you need to make them ahead and store…they reheat quite easily in your toaster. Just cut them into half.
image
Stick them into your toaster to reheat.
image
Ready to serve…
image
Warm, melty, cheesy….yum yum!
