1 bowl wheat flour (I guessed and used 4 cups)
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon salt
Dry flour for rolling
Oil for shallow frying
water for making dough (I ended up using 1 1/4 cup)
3 medium potatoes boiled and mashed
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ginger paste (I just finely chopped ginger)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
3 green chillies deseeded and finely chopped (I forgot to get these and used 1 tsp of crushed/dried chillies)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/4 teaspoon clove powder
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1.To the mashed potato add the spices ,coriander, chillies,ginger and lemon juice and mix.
2.Divide mixture into 8 parts and make small balls. (I got 16 out of this recipe)
1.Add salt and oil to flour and make a dough using a little water.Cover and leave for 1 hour.
2.Divide the dough into 8 small balls. (16)
3.Using dry flour roll each ball into a three inch round , place the potato ball in centre and bring sides up to encase the potato ball within the dough.
Here’s the whole process in photos
4.Using dry flour flatten the potato coated dough patty and gently roll into a six inch paratha.
5.Heat a tava (fry pan) and place the paratha on it , when it starts to form bubbles turn it over.
6.Spread some oil on the paratha and turn it over and let it cook under neath.
7.Spread some oil on top side and flip the paratha over and cook top side.
8. Cook remaining parathas in same way.
Serve with plain yoghurt and pickle. (I served with rhubarb chutney)
