  • 2 Large potatoes boiled peeled
  • 1 Cup chopped onion
  • 1 Handful of mint leaves
  • 1 Green chili finely chopped
  • ⅛ Tsp carom seeds
  • ½ Tsp dry mango powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 Cups of Wheat flour
  • 4 Tsp oil
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Mix everything except the flour

    Step 2

    Mash with a Potato masher so that there are no lumps

    Step 3

    Slowly mix water into wheat flour till it forms a sticky dough. Add 2 tsp oil and kneed for 5 mins and keep it aside the dough will be sticky that's ok

    Step 4

    The dough will stick like this

    Step 5

    Keep the dough in an airtight container for an hour put 2 tsp oil and kneed it for another 5-10 mins.This is the dough after 30 mins It's still a little sticky but ok to work with but I am used to it.

    Step 6

    Put flour on your fingers

    Step 7

    Pull a little enough for one parantha

    Step 8

    I took about this much. You can take less than this if you would like. For first timers it's good if you take less dough and make small parathas till you get used to it. Rolling them will be easy.

    Step 9

    Speed it with your fingers or with a rolling pin about double the size

    Step 10

    Take the potato mixture. This should be more than the flour dough you take. Almost double the dough.

    Step 11

    Place it in the middle

    Step 12

    Start to close it

    Step 13

    Flour your work surface and start rolling

    Step 14

    Don't press too hard with the rolling pin or the potatoes come out of the dough. 1ce you do a couple you will get the hang of it.

    Step 15

    On the pan :)

    Step 16

    Once it starts to bubble pour oil around the parantha on the pan so that it goes underneath it

    Step 17

    and over it. As long as you put oil on both the sides it's good. Put oil on 1 side flip and put oil on the other side.

    Step 18


    Step 19

    Flip again and its ready when both sides look like this. Enjoy this with a spat of butter on the top and plain yogurt on the side.
