Add turmeric powder, coriander powder and saute the spices. Add green chili, green pea paste to the spices. Keep flame medium. Roast until it dries up. Crumble and add boiled potatoes too.

As the dough sets, grease hands with oil, Squash the dough for 1 to 2 minutes. Break lump from the dough, make dough ball. Coat dough ball in dry flour, roll it out 3 to 4 inch in diameter. Then grease with oil on all sides, keep the stuffing over it. Make pleats, close the stuffing. Press with hands to spread stuffing evenly. Coat it in dry flour, lightly roll out thick paratha. 

Heat tawa. Put the paratha to roast. R oll out the paratha likewise. Flip and roast paratha until the other side is brown. Grease parantha with oil. Press and roast the parathas well, till brown spots appear on both sides. Keep the paratha in a bowl over the plate. Roast all parathas likewise.

Serve Sumptuous Parathas with curd, chutney, pickle or any favorite gravy sabzi.

Suggestion : 

  • If you prefer it spicy add more of red chili powder.
  • Keep the size of parathas as desired. 
  • Greasing the paratha is not essential but if you grease then the parathas become more crispy. 
  • You can adjust the quantity of stuffing for paratha as desired, do not over stuff the paratha. 
  • Do not press the parathas hard while rolling out, or do not roll out too thin else stuffing will come out. 
  • Do not keep the steaming hot paratha in the plate else it will turn soggy.

    Thank you for this recipe! Even for me as German, who usually does not create pan-fried bried, the steps were easy to follow and the whole family loved the fresh parathas. We enjoyed them together with cream cheese and pickled pumpkin.
