For Potato Stuffing


Making Potato Stuffing

  • Cook potatoes till 3 whistles in a pressure cooker or boil in a pan with a closed lid for 30 minutes.

Preparing Dough

  • Mix wheat flour, carrom seeds and salt. Knead a soft dough by gradually adding water.

Rolling Potato Paratha

  • Take a medium-sized ball from the dough, dust it off with dry flour and roll it into a small doughnut like circle.
  • Take a tablespoon of potato stuffing and put it at the center of it. Please do not overfill it else it may leak from there of it. Bring all the edges together and pinch to seal it.
  • Pressure sllightly from the top to flatten the dough ball. Again dust it off with dry flour and roll into a bigger size flatbread. Put the least pressure while rolling this time.

Cooking Potato Paratha

  • Heat Tawa or a flat pan on medium to high flame. Make sure your pan is hot enough to cook before putting paratha into it.
  • Add paratha and cook for 1 – 2 minutes.
