  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1 green chili, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Ghee (clarified butter) for cooking


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour and a pinch of salt. Add water gradually and knead the dough until it’s soft and pliable. Cover it with a damp cloth and set it aside for 15 minutes.
  2. In another bowl, mix the mashed potatoes, green chili, cumin seeds, red chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, fresh coriander leaves, and salt. Mix everything thoroughly to make the potato filling.
  3. Divide the dough into equal-sized balls, slightly smaller than a tennis ball. Take one dough ball, flatten it in your palm, and place a portion of the potato filling in the center.
  4. Gather the edges of the dough to encase the potato filling completely. Press it down gently.
  5. Roll out the stuffed dough ball into a flatbread (paratha) using a rolling pin. Be careful not to tear it.
  6. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Place the rolled-out paratha on the hot griddle and cook until you see small bubbles forming on the surface.
  7. Flip the paratha and spread some ghee on the cooked side. Flip it again and spread ghee on the other side as well.
  8. Cook until both sides are golden brown and crisp.
  9. Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls and potato filling.
  10. Serve hot with yogurt, pickle, or a side of mint chutney.
