Nutrition: per serving



  • 300 g Plain Flour plus extra for dusting
  • 200 g Potatoes boiled and mashed
  • 1 Onion finely chopped
  • 1 Green Chilli finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander chopped
  • Ghee for cooking


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the plain flour and a pinch of salt. Gradually add water and knead to form a soft dough. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.
  • In another bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, chopped onion, green chilli, cumin seeds, garam masala, turmeric powder, chilli powder, salt, and fresh coriander leaves. Set aside.
  • Divide the dough into equal-sized portions and roll each portion into a ball. Flatten each ball slightly and dust with flour.
  • Take one flattened dough ball and roll it out into a small circle. Place a portion of the potato mixture in the centre.
  • Gather the edges of the dough to enclose the filling and pinch to seal. Flatten the filled dough ball slightly.
  • Dust the filled dough ball with flour and roll it out gently into a flatbread, ensuring the filling is evenly distributed.
  • Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium heat. Place the rolled-out paratha onto the hot pan.
  • Cook the paratha on one side until bubbles start to appear, then flip it over.
  • Spread some ghee or oil on the cooked side and flip again. Press down gently with a spatula to ensure even cooking.
  • Cook until both sides are golden brown and crispy. Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls and filling.
  • Serve hot with yogurt, pickle, or chutney.
