Roti Dough

Procedure

STEP 1: Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, chopped onion and ginger. Cook till the onion turns golden brown.

STEP 2: Add green chilli, chilli powder, coriander powder and salt. Add very little water and cook till the raw smell goes away.

STEP 3: Now add the mashed potato and mix well. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes and turn off the heat.

STEP 4: Add chopped coriander leaves and squeeze the lemon juice (OPTIONAL) to give the mixture a tangy taste. Mix well and keep it aside.

STEP 5: Take small portion of the wheat flour dough and shape it to a ball. Make a small hole (just big enough to put the potato filling). Fill the dough with potato stuffing and seal it so the mixture doesn’t come out when making the roti.

STEP 6: Using a rolling pin spread the stuffed dough and make round roti. Be careful not to roll too hard.

STEP 7: Heat a pan. Add some butter/oil. Place the roti and cook well on both sides till it turns golden brown.

Aloo Paratha with Raitha

TIP: This roti tastes good even without a side dish. If you need some accompaniment, the easiest option would be to serve with onion, tomato raitha.
