Extra Flour for Dusting & Oil for cooking


  • Mix dough ingredients together and make a soft dough as we do for chapati dough & knead it for sometime.
  • Apply oil on the dough & cover it with wet cloth & rest it for minimum 15mins.
  • Heat Oil in a pan & fry Onion & green chili til transparent.
  • Add All powders & saute it for a minute along with salt.
  • Adjust Salt & spice.
  • Finely add mashed potato & cilantro to this mixture.
  • Turn off the heat & allow it to cool.
  • Meanwhile Knead the dough for a 2 minutes & divide it in to 6 equal portion balls.
  • Once Onion mixture cooled down, divide it in to 6 equal portion & make sure masala portion is bigger than dough portion balls.
  • Dust little flour on the rolling surface, Take dough ball & roll it into 5' circle and place the Onion masala ball in center & lift the edges of the dough together to seal the masala ball. Press it in center & flat the stuffed ball. 
  • Do the same with rest of the balls & keep it aside for 10mins.
  • Again Roll the stuffed balls into 8' circle & make sure sealed surface is on top while rolling and roll it gently to avoid filling oozes out from the dough.
  • Heat the skillet hot & place the paratha over the skillet.
  • When paratha puff up slightly, flip to other side & drizzle oil or ghee over and edges of the paratha.
  • Gently press with spatula to balloon up the paratha & both sides are cooked well & in golden brown colour.
