Ingredients

For the paratha dough

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • ½ cup water , use more as needed
  • pinch of salt

For the potato filling

Also needed

  • ¼ cup whole-wheat flour for rolling
  • oil to cook

Instructions

Procedure for the paratha dough

  • Mix flour, salt and water together to make soft dough (if the dough is hard add a little more water).
  • 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.

Procedure for the 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. Note: Do not cool the potatoes under running water because the potatoes will become too soft.
  • After the potatoes are cold enough to handle, peel the skin off and mash the potatoes.
  • Mix green chillies, coriander, cumin seeds and salt to the mashed potatoes.

Making the paratha

  • Divide the dough and potato mixture into 4 equal parts of each. The potato balls should be about 1½ times larger than the dough balls.
  • Roll the dough into 7cm diameter circles. Place the potato balls in the centre. Seal by pulling the edges of the rolled dough together to make a ball. Proceed to make all six balls.
  • Let them settle for 3 to 4 minutes before rolling them.
  • Heat the skillet on medium high. Note: An iron skillet works best. To check if the skillet is hot enough, sprinkle a couple of drops of water on it. If the water sizzles right away, the skillet is ready.
  • To make it easier to roll the balls, first roll them in dry whole-wheat flour.
  • Lightly press the ball on the sealed side and keep it on the topside when rolling. Roll the ball light handed in to 15 cm 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.
  • Place the paratha over the skillet. After a few seconds you will see the paratha change colour and puff in different places.
  • 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 press with the spatula making sure the paratha is golden-brown on both sides.
  • Cool the parathas on a wire rack so they don’t get soggy. Parathas can be kept for up to 2 days wrapped in aluminium foil or in a covered container. For later use, parathas can be refrigerated for 5-6 days or frozen (wrapped in aluminium foil) for a month. Re-heat on a skillet or toaster oven.
