The highlight of this paratha is its stuffing, which is quite unique despite using common ingredients.

The combination of slightly mashed potatoes and green peas gives the mixture a unique texture and a special, mealy mouth-feel, which is made all the more enticing by the addition of myriad spice powders.

Since the stuffing is not dry and soft, we will not be rolling it up in the dough and pressing it again into a circle, like usual Parathas . Instead, we will simply be folding the mixture into circles made of the dough, which makes the Stuffed Potato and Green Peas Paratha more attractive and also reduces the preparation time.

For the dough

For the subzi

  1. Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds and sauté on a medium flame for 30 seconds.

  3. Add the garam masala, cumin seeds powder, dried mango powder and chilli powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while mashing it occasionally with a potato masher. Keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions.
  2. Roll 1 portion of the dough into 150 mm. (6”) diameter circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
  3. Place the roti on a clean, dry surface, place approx. 2 tbsp of the stuffing on one half of the roti.
  4. Fold the other half of the roti over the stuffing to make a semi-circle and press it lightly so that the stuffing doesn’t spill out.
