 Tips and variations

  • I usually grate the boiled and cooled potato. Then it is easier to mash without lumps.
  • You can make the dough and keep in the fridge for 2-3 days and quickly make parathas as and when you want.
  •  You can add garam masala , til(sesame seeds), jeera powder(cumin powder), grated onion for variation to this recipe.
  • Adding oil while cooking is optional.
  • Keep parathas covered till serving time. This will keep them soft.
