This is one of the most delicious parathas I’ve ever tasted – Of all the veggie kinds we make, this certainly appeals to me most, probably because I love sweet potatoes and know how much goodness the veggie contains! I always have a willing helper whenever I make chappatis or parathas and it always becomes a super fun experience (forget about the cleaning up part – blessed to have a son and a hubby who help out in that department)
Here is the recipe
2 cups of whole wheat atta (chakki) bought from indian store
3 boiled and mashed sweet potatoes
2-3 green chilies finely diced
1 red onion diced (optional)
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp baking powder
1tbsp cliantro finely chopped
1tbsp of warm milk or water – if necessary!
First heat the oil and lightly fry the onions to get rid of the rawness.
If you have a mixer, add the atta and the baking powder and salt and spin to mix. Or dry mix the 3 ingredients.
Add the peeled, boiled and mashed sweet potatoes, onions, cilantro and chilies and knead into the dough either with hand or in the mixer for about 4-5 minutes on medium speed until it forms into a nice ball.
Let the mix rest for about 10 minutes (not required to let it rest for too long, although it does no harm)
*if you find the mix too thick and dry, add 1 tbsp of warm milk or water to it.
NOTE: the dough should be soft and pliable without being sticky.
Dust the rolling surface with flour
Make plum sized balls with the mix and roll out.
If you use a non stick, there is absolutely no need to add more oil, since often as Indians we have these with pickles
This is a wholesome dish that does not require sides since we’ve already flavored it with some yummy stuff, but enjoying these with some dahi or yogurt takes them to the next level of bliss
