Potato Stuffed Paratha
I used to get scared of making parathas as i assume the process to be little time consuming than making rotis. When i had lots of potato lying in my kitchen basket finally i decided to do potato stuffed paratha. The best combination for this is any raitha with pickle. (i came know this from my husband :)) Though the process is little longer, its worth for the delicious taste :)
Potato - cooked, skin peeled off and mashed nicely.
onion - cut into thin pieces
Ginger garlic paste - little
chilly powder - little
salt and oil
For the stuffing, heat oil in a kadai and add the mustard seeds. Once it starts to splutter, add little amount of jeera and add the onions. Add little amount of ginger garlic paste also. Saute them well and now add the mashed potato to the mix. Sprinkle salt and chilly powder to the masala and leave it in the flame for 2 mins till the raw smell of the chilly powder is gone. Remove from flame and keep it aside.
For paratha, make small balls of the chapathi dough and spread it to thin chapathis. Place small amount of stuffing inside and close the chapathi from all ends. Sprinkle little amount of wheat flour on the ball and spread the chapathi again very gently. Now cook it in a pan. Add oil/ghee around and on the chapathi and cook it well.
Serve hot with raitha and pickle. :)
