Making dough for paratha

  • Heat oil in a pan. Add in cumin seeds, pinch of asafoetida and Curry leaves. Let them splutter. Add chopped onion and saute till translucent. 
  • Add grated potatoes, cumin powder, dry mango powder, red chili powder, turmeric powder and salt to taste. Crush kasoori methi on your palm and add in to mixture. Mix well and reduce the heat. Let it cook for 2 minutes on low heat. Keep stirring the mixture.
  • Finally, add lime juice and chopped cilantro. Switch off the heat and let the stuffing cool down. Make 5 equal sized balls and keep them aside.
Roasting of paratha

  • Take a medium sized ball of dough and roll it like a small puri. Roll the edges, keeping middle part thick. Place stuffing on it. Cover all sides of stuffing with edges of dough. Dip into flour. Roll gently and evenly from all the sides. Roll paratha  thick than chapati/roti.
  • Roast paratha well from both sides. Apply ghee on it while roasting. Serve paratha with any chutney, pickle or rayata.
