Required Flour to roll
Oil for cooking


  • Mix together dough ingredients and make soft dough as we do for chapati dough & knead for some time.
  • Apply oil on the dough & cover it with wet cloth & rest it for minimum 15 mins.
  • Cook potatoes in boiling water, until tender and drain the water & allow it to cool then peel the skin .
  • Mash the cooked potatoes & add filling ingredients together, mix well and keep it aside.
  • Divide the dough & potato mixture into 6~7 equal parts and make sure potato balls must be bigger than dough balls.
  • With help of rolling pin, roll the dough in to 5" circle & place potato ball in center and lift the edges of the dough and bring it together to seal. Press it in center & flat the stuffed balls. Do the same with rest of the balls & keep it aside for 10mins.
  • Lightly flour your rolling surface & roll the stuffed balls into 8" circle.  Make sure sealed side is on top while rolling & roll it gently to avoid filling oozes out from the dough.
  • Heat the griddle to sizzling hot & place the paratha over the griddle, when paratha puff up slightly flip to other side & drizzle Oil or Ghee over and edges of the paratha.
  • Gently press with spatula & make sure both sides are cooked well and in golden brown color.
