Parathas are absolutely delicious. My favorite are potato. They are nicely flavored without being overdone. Just the right balance of spice and comfort.
What you will need for this recipe are potatoes, onions, garlic, red chili powder, dried mango powder, salt, flour and water.
Combine all the ingredients for the filling and make a soft dough with the flour and water.
Divide the potato into six portions, and do the same with the dough.
You then flatten a portion of dough slightly.
Place a portion of potato in your flattened dough.
Bring up the sides of the dough till the potato is snug inside.
Flatten the dough-potato ball till it is about an inch thick.
Roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
Lightly fry the paranthas on either side until they are golden and cooked through.
