Ingredients

Stuffing

  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 or 2 Serrano chili finely chopped depending on the spice level you want
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 inch ginger finely chopped

Dough

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour for use during kneading and rolling
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder or black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon carom seeds ajwain
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder

Instructions

To make the stuffing

  • Boil the potatoes till nicely cooked and soft then Peel and mash them to a smooth mash.
  • Add in everything else and mix well and keep aside.

To make the dough

  • Mix in everything and knead to a soft dough. Keep aside for 5 minutes.
  • Knead dough again and make into balls. I got about 8 balls of about 2/3 size of my palm. Make balls depending on the size of the flat bread you want.
  • Take one ball and roll it out to 8 inch circle. While rolling keep the center thick and the edges thin.
  • Put 2 tablespoon stuffing in the middle.
  • Fold up opposite sides to form a rectangle or square.
  • Roll it out slowly using flour to get about 1/8 inch thick paratha.
  • Cook it on a hot flat pan on medium high heat.
  • Turn it after 2 minutes and apply 3-4 drops of oil to the cooked side.
  • Repeat on the other side.
  • Cook for another 2 minutes on both sides or until paratha looks crisp. golden and brown.
  • Serve hot with curd and indian pickle!
