After grinding, in a bowl add 1 cup of water chestnut flour, potato paste, ¾ tsp of salt, ¼ tsp of coarsely ground black pepper, ½ tsp of cumin and 1 tbsp of finely chopped coriander leaves.  Mix them well, on mixing it will be very thick, so by adding water little by little, knead the dough like a paratha dough.

Process of making Parathas


Take a little ghee in your hand and mash the dough lightly.  Make a peda by breaking a little dough, then wrap it in dry flour and raise it with your hands.  Then wrap it back in dry flour and roll it out lightly.  After rolling, you can cut it with a big lid and give it a round shape.


Now heat the pan and spread some ghee on it.  Then put the parantha on the pan and cook it on low-medium flame till it becomes slightly dark from above.  After the colour changes, flip it over and cook it till brown spots appear on both the sides.  Then take it off and roast the rest of the parathas in the same way.


Now serve the plate and enjoy this low ghee fasting meal with your family.
