Ingredients

  • 2 x medium sized potatoes
  • 1/4 tspn salt
  • 1/4 cup cumin seed
  • 1/2 tspn red chillie powder
  • 1/4 tspn salt
  • 1 cup wheatflour
  • 2 tspn oil
  • 1 cup water

Method

Dough

Mix flour, salt ,water and few drops of oil together to make soft dough .
Knead the dough for a few minutes on a lightly greased surface to make smooth and pliable dough.
Set the dough aside and cover it with a damp cloth. Let the dough rest for at least ten minutes.

Filling
Boil 2 medium potatoes with 2 cups of water. After the water comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium. Let the potatoes cook until they are tender.
Once tender, remove them from the water and let them cool down.

Mash the potatoes ad salt,Red chilli powder and cumin seeds and mix well

Parathas:
Roll the dough into 3 inch diameter circles. Place the potato balls in the center. Seal by pulling the edges of the rolled dough together to make a ball. Proceed to make all six balls.

Slightly press the ball on the sealed side and keep it on the topside when rolling. Roll the ball light handed in to 6-inch circles. Whenever the dough sticks to the rolling pin or rolling surface, lightly sprinkle dry whole-wheat flour on both sides of the semi-rolled paratha

Heat the skillet on high heat for 2 mts and reduce to medium heat.
Once the skilled is heated Place the paratha over the skillet. After a few seconds you will see the paratha change color and puff in different places.

Then flip the paratha over. You should see some golden-brown spots on the topside. After a few seconds, spread 1 teaspoon of oil on the paratha. Again, flip the paratha and lightly press the puffed areas with a spatula.Flip again and make sure paratha is in golden brown color on both side.

And Serve…
