Eco friendly Fantastic Antiplastic dishes and bread pudding

These Antiplastic dishes are made with bio based material that come from American grown corn. These dishes are made in the USA. The bioplastic is made with a polymer which is produced by microbal fermentation of sugar and therefore doesn't have BPA, phthalates or PVC. It is dishwasher safe, heat resistant and durable. The dishes are pending approval for microwave use. If a knife or cutter is used on it surface, it will scratch just like other plastic. It is fully biodegradable in 2 to 3 years compared to ordinary plastic that will take 500 years and still leave toxic chemicals in the environment.
I like that this type of products are a step towards stopping the destruction of our planet. Thank you Zoe b organic for introducing us to this colourful, sustainable, high quality and functional dishes that look and feel like plastic but safer for the environment and us.

Knead the flour into a soft smooth dough, use water a tbsp at a time as needed. Leave it to rest for about 1/2 hour.
Divide the dough into 6 parts and roll it to a thin 8" diameter. Oil the rolling pin and surface if needed, do not put flour on the board.

To make the potato filling, mash the boiled potatoes with the onion, coriander leaves, green chillie and salt. Make 6 parts.

Any type of chutney tamarind, green chutney or any type of sauce
Heat a frying pan on medium low heat. Add a little oil to the pan if needed, place the roti and spread 1 beaten egg or 1/2 a beaten egg.
Cover the roti a little if needed so the egg cooks faster and the bottom doesn't get too crispy. When the egg is set and no longer runny turn it and cook for a few seconds. Then put the filling and roll it. Do the same with each pre cooked roti.

Put the filling in the middle of the roti egg side up, put sauce on it if you prefer and roll. Serve it hot. I used tamarind chutney in these frankie or murtabak, also known as kathi roll.

I am glad to receive a complimentary package from Olivado oils to review and to be introduced to this delicious brand of cold pressed extra virgin avocado oil.
Here are a few dishes I tried it on; stir-fried egg rice, broccoli stir fry and in roti's with vegetables and meat. It didn't burn in high heat rather gave an enhancing flavour without overpowering the dishes.
It is perfect for frying, sauteing and cooking.

It has an excellent source of Vitamin E reduces cardiovascular diseases. It also has chlorophylls antioxidants that reduce risk of cancer, cartenoid lutein which reduces age related macular degeneration and prostate cancer.

It is also good for the skin and hair.
It is suitable for raw food diet and is excellent on salads, dressing and dipping.

This salad is tossed with avocado oil and topped with croutons and parmesan cheese.
