Potato And Parsley Paratha


          Most often, I make only plain rotis, parathas are reserved for those relaxed weekend lunches, as they take a little more time to roll out. But if you mix in the filling to the dough instead of stuffing it in the parathas, it saves some time. Adding some boiled potatoes to the roti dough makes it more softer and I had a big bunch of parsley and really didn't know how to use it all up, so just added some to the parathas instead of the regular coriander. The parathas came out really soft and tasted great..

Need To Have
  • Whole Wheat Flour - 2 + 1/2 cups
  • Mashed Potatoes - 1/2 cup
  • Chopped Parsley - 1 cup
  • Chilli Powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Asafoetida - 1/4 teaspoon

Method
          Mix all the ingredients with salt and water and make a soft dough, apply some oil and keep. Roll out into slightly thick discs or rotis. Put them on a hot pan, cook for few seconds, flip over, apply some oil, flip over,  apply oil on the second side, cook till brown spots appear on the bottom, flip one more time and cook on the second side. Remove it and serve it warm with any side dish or with just some pickle and curd.

Note 
If you are planning to make the parathas a little later, prepare a slightly stiff dough, it tends to become very soft and sticky and will be difficult to roll out.

  7. Parsley is not a personal favourite but this is how flavour combinations are figured out! Intersting that you choe hing/asafoetida instead of any other spice. :-)

  28. I love flat breads and there is such an amazing array of them out there! This method of fillings being included in the dough is a great idea. No doubt these are packed with flavor. I am saving this-yum!
