Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Extra Sunflower Oil for frying

Extra flour for rolling

For the dough

  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour or Atta
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • Approx 1 cup Water

For the Filling

  • 1 teaspoon Sunflower Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger paste
  • 2 Green Chilies, finely chopped
  • 1 Boiled Potato, peeled and mashed
  • 1 cup crumbled Paneer
  • 1/2 teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander Powder
  • Salt to taste

Methods

  • In a bowl, mix together atta and salt and make a well in the center. Add some water and start mixing the dough. Add water little by little as you knead the dough till it's soft, smooth and supple.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add ginger paste and green chilies. Cook for a minute and add potatoes, paneer, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt. Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes. Switch off the flame and set aside to cool.
  • To start making parathas, heat a tawa.
  • While the tawa is heating, take a golf ball sized piece of dough and roll it out till it's about 2 inches in diameter. Use extra flour while rolling to avoid the dough from sticking.
  • Place a tablespoon of filling in the center of the dough, and wrap the edges over it and seal them so that the stuffing is inside and the dough once again resembles a ball.
  • Keep dipping the dough in extra flour and roll it out till it's 4-5 inches in diameter.
  • Flip the dough onto the hot tawa. Once you see small bubbles on the surface, flip it and spread a teaspoon of oil on top. Repeat this till the parathas are cooked through and golden brown on each side. Serve hot with curds, raita and butter.
