Ingredients
Dough
  • 2½ cup (375 gram) all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
Filling
  • 1½ cup mashed potato (about 350-400 gram potato)
  • ¼ cup shallot, sliced
  • 2 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • 4 tablespoon scallion, sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • ½ inch ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
Raita (optional)
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup diced cucumber
  • 2 tablespoon sliced scallions
  • 1-2 tablespoon sliced cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon garam masala
Instructions
  1. To make the dough, knead all purpose flour, salt, and water in into a soft, smooth, and elastic dough (~ 8 minutes), then place in an oiled bowl and cover with saran to rest (30 minutes - 2 hours).
  2. To make the filling, mix all filling ingredients together. Since the filling ingredients can be eaten as is, you can give a quick taste test and adjust salt/pepper to suit your taste.
  3. Once the dough has rested, divide into 4 portions. Roll each dough into an 8 inch circle, place ¼ of filling at the center, then gather the dough edges and pinch to seal. With the seams side down, gently flatten and roll into an 8" circle of about ½" thick. Repeat for 3 more portions.
  4. Heat about ¼" of olive oil in a frying pan/skillet. Once the oil is hot, fry the stuffed dough for 2 minutes until golden brown. Gently flip and cook the other side as well until golden brown, another 2 minutes.
  5. Place cooked paratha on a wire rack over a baking tray to keep them crispy while you cook the rest of the stuffed dough.
  6. Cut the fried paratha into wedges and serve with raita.
