  • For the filling:

  • 2 medium potatoes, boiled and mashed

  • 1 cup finely chopped fenugreek leaves (methi)

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  • 1 green chili, finely chopped (optional)

  • 1/2 inch ginger, grated

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds

  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1/4 tsp garam masala

  • 1/4 tsp red chili powder (optional)

  • Salt to taste

  • Oil for cooking

Directions

  • 1. Create the dough:
    Mix flour and salt in a large bowl.
    Add the oil gradually and mix on medium until you obtain coarse bread crumb.
    Mix some lukewarm water into the dough gradually until the dough becomes soft and easily elastic.
    Cover it with a damp cloth and let it stand for 30 minutes.
  • 2. Craft the filling:
    Heat some oil in a pan and when cumin seeds start popping, place it over the heat.
    Soften onion and ginger in butter and oil.
    Stir one minute if chopped green chilli is used.
    Then add the mashed potatoes, fenugreek leaves and the spices.
    Stir well and cook it for 2-3 minutes until it becomes dry and spicy.
    Sprinkle it with a little salt and let it stay for a while.
  • 3. Assemble and cook the parathas:
    Make an equal amount of dough balls and roll each one into a disc.
    Place some of the filling in the middle of the disc.
    Fold the half-moon shapes along the edges to cover the filling.
    Seal the edges tightly.
    Sprinkle flour over the paratha and flatten it with a roller.
    Put oil in a tava or griddle and heat it.
    Cook the paratha over medium heat and flip frequently until golden and crispy on both sides.

Tips:

  • Use fresh leaves of fenugreek for their best flavor and aroma.
  • Avoid overstuffing the parathas to prevent bursting during cooking.
  • Adjust the spice levels according to your preference.
  • It can be served hot together with a teaspoon of yogurt, chutney or pickle.
