Indian cuisine is gaining a stronger hold on the rest of the world. With the South Asian aesthetic and lifestyle gaining importance in pop culture, the West is trying to get into everything Indian. A vlogger couple, Monty and Andrea, are taking the internet by storm.
German Woman Goes Viral For Making Rotis With Secret Ingredient
The international couple is the result of an Indian man being married to a German woman. Andrea often delves into Indian culture and has been trying different Indian dishes on her Instagram account. However, this time around, her experiment with the staple desi roti had people in a bind.
Not long ago, Andrea revealed a clever trick to achieve incredibly soft rotis by using just one ingredient. Her video has become incredibly popular and resonated with chefs and Indian cooks across the internet, while others are still sceptical about it all.
The video was posted on the couple’s combined Instagram account, @we_coffeemilkfamily. The clip has garnered more than 1.1 million views and nearly 25,000 likes since it was posted online.
What Was The Secret Ingredient?
Now, most of you will be questioning what the German blogger could have used as a secret ingredient to achieve soft rotis. It might come as a shock, but Andrea used ripe avocados to make her rotis extra soft.
According to the video, adding a small amount of mashed avocado to the dough did the trick, and the rotis were then prepared in the usual manner, resulting in exceptionally soft bites of a regular round desi chapati.

Andrea explained herself in the caption, “At first I thought, mhhhh, avocado does not belong in the roti dough… but I had to try it anyway.” She added, “After that, I served them to my family, and everyone liked this variation. Especially because they get really super soft whether they are puffed or not.”
