Indian Potato-Stuffed Paratha

This is how to make potato paratha - a shallow, fried, Indian bread stuffed with a tasty potato mixture. This is good for a kid’s tiffin box. Serve potato paratha hot with curd, pickle, and green chutney.



Step: 1

Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain. Let cool 10 minutes.

Step: 2

Combine whole wheat flour and salt in a bowl. Add water; knead, adding additional water as needed, until dough is smooth. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes.

Step: 3

Mash the boiled potatoes in a bowl. Add green chile peppers, red chile peppers, coriander leaves, garam masala, cumin, amchoor, asafoetida, and salt. Mix well and set aside.

Step: 4

Form dough into small balls and flatten by pressing. Place a small amount of potato mixture evenly into each flattened dough ball, reserving any leftovers. Lift up edges of dough and seal completely by pressing. Sprinkle each with flour; use a rolling pin to flatten.

Step: 5

Heat a nonstick tawa, or a large domed griddle, over low heat. Cook each paratha for 2 minutes and then split with a knife into 2 halves. Pour vegetable oil in on both sides and fry until light brown and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with reserved mashed potato mixture.
