METHOD

To make the dough
Mix flour and oil well, add a little bit of water at a time and make a soft dough

To make the stuffing
Boil the potatoes – peel and mash
Add all the ingredients into the mashed potatoes and mix well
Add a little bit of water if needed to make it smooth

To make the parathas
Divide the dough into even portions (each paratha will require 2 thin rotis)
Roll out one roti and evenly spread the potato stuffing on it, cover it with another rolled out roti just like a sandwich
Pinch the sides to seal both rotis, cook on both sides on low flame while lightly brushing the parathas with ghee or butter on both sides
