Serves 4


For Stuffing

  • 4 -5 medium potatoes
  • 4 tbsp coriander, chopped
  • 5 green chillies, chopped finely (optional)
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp red chilli flakes

For Parathas

  • 3 cups wheat flour
  • 300ml water
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Start off by cutting the potatoes into quarters and boil them in a pot of hot water for 15-20 minutes, or until you can poke it with a knife and it's soft enough to easily go all the way through.

  2. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher or a fork. Add the spices and chopped coriander in it and set aside.

  3. Divide the dough into 8 pieces and roll them into balls.

  4. Flatten the dough balls and with a rolling pin. Take two of these flattened dough balls and put 3 tbsp of the stuffing between the dough. Close from the edges - secure properly.

  5. Start rolling the parathas with a rolling pin. Make sure to slowly do it, so you don't press it too hard in one place or the stuffing will come out.

  6. Heat a pan with medium-low heat. Sprinkle on some oil and let the pan heat more. Place the paratha on the pan and cook on each side for 1-2 minutes. Add 1 tsp more oil when the parathas are half-way cooked.

  7. Serve with chutneys of your choice.


  • Make sure that while cooking the paratha in the pan, the heat is set to medium-low heat so the paratha cooks all the way through without being burnt.
  • Don't add too much oil till the time that the paratha is half cooked. This trick will help it cook better!
  • In step 5, do make sure you've properly sealed the edges of the dough which now has the potato stuffing in the middle. Press with your thumb along the edges to make sure it's completely secure.
  • Don't roll the paratha to hard. Use soft fluid motions to make sure the stuffing doesn't come out.
  • You can put other stuffings along with the spicy potato mash in the paratha!
  • Put fresh coriander, finely chopped for a more delicious and fragrant paratha!
