Ingredients

For dough
Atta 1 Cup (16 tbs) (more for dusting)
Potato 2 Medium , peeled, cooked & mashed
Sugar 2 Tablespoon
Milk 100 Milliliter (enough to make the dough)
Salt To Taste
For filliing
Onion 1 Medium , finely chopped
Green chili 2 Medium , finely chopped
Coriander leaves 2 Tablespoon , finely chopped
Garam masala 1 Teaspoon
Oil 2 Teaspoon (Optional)

Directions

GETTING READY

1. In a bowl, knead together all ingredients mentioned under “for dough” in to a smooth dough. Care must be taken to add milk little by little to ensure the dough does not become too sticky. Keep aside.

2. Using hands roughly mix together the ingredients mentioned under “for the filling”. Keep aside.

MAKING

3. Heat up a tawa/pan. It is faster to do the rolling and cooking simultaneously.

4. Dust your work surface and one at a time, make 1 ½ inch sized balls out of the dough. Roll it out into 3-3 1/2 inch diameter circle, put a spoonful of filling, seal the sides by sticking or twisting, slightly flatten the ball in between your palm, dust it and then roll it out again into a 6-7 inch diameter paratha; dust using flour as needed so as to ensure the rolled out paratha does not stick to the work surface. Repeat the process with the rest of the dough.

5. Place the paratha on the tawa and cook. Once the side is browned, flip over and cook again, until both the sides are browned. Use butter or oil to grease, if you wish. Transfer to hot box to keep warm.

SERVING

6. Serve hot with a dollop of butter/garlic butter and with some spicy north Indian pickle by the side.

TIPS

Feel free to season the filling the way you like; I have just done the basic here.

NOTES

Atta will be very soft and hence you have to be very careful when rolling out.
