I am a ‘Paratha’ lover, you must be aware by this time. I like to experiment with different types of stuffed and non-stuffed ‘parthas’. Recently I tried this ‘Ranga Aloor Pur Bhora Parota’ and it turned out really well. It requires very few ingredients available in your kitchen. Do try this recipe and serve as a lunch, brunch or pack in lunch box.
For making the dough:
- Ata or Whole Wheat Flour – 2 cups
- Salt – ½ tsp
- Oil – 2 tsp
For making the stuffing:
- Ranga Aloo or Sweet Potato – 2 cups (Boiled)
- Ginger Paste – 1 tsp
- Roasted Cumin & Red Chilli Powder – 1 ½ tsp
- Coriander Powder – ½ tsp
- Chaat Masala – ½ tsp
- Aamchur or Dry Mango Powder – ½ tsp
- Salt – To taste
- Lemon Juice – 2 tsp
- Green Chilli – 2 (Finely chopped)
- Chopped Coriander Leaf – ¼ cup
- Oil – For roasting the Parathas
- In a big mixing bowl mix in ata and salt. Knead into a semi soft dough adding a little water at a time.
- Apply 2 tsp oil on the dough. Cover and leave for 30 minutes.
- Take boiled sweet potato in another bowl.
- Add all powder masalas and ginger paste. Mix with your hand.
- Now add salt, lemon juice, chopped green chilli and chopped coriander. Mix one more time.
- Divide the dough into seven or eight equal portion.
- Roll between your hands. Roll one dough into a small disk.
- Put 2 tsp sweet potato stuffing on the rolled dough. Cover the stuffing from all sides.
- Again roll between your hand and roll the stuffed dough ball into a round disk like aloo paratha.
- Heat a tava. Dry roast the parathas. Then apply a little oil on paratha. Turn the paratha and apply some more oil on the other side.
- Roast the parathas till brown spot appears on the parathas.
- Repeat the process for rest of the parathas.
- Serve hot with raita or Chana Masala or both.
