How to make Potato Stuffed Paratha

Potato-stuffed paratha is a delicious and popular Indian flatbread made by stuffing a mixture of spiced mashed potatoes into a whole wheat dough and then pan-frying it until golden and cooked through. It’s a favorite breakfast item or can be enjoyed as a main course along with yogurt, pickles, or chutney. Here’s a basic recipe for making potato-stuffed paratha:


For the dough:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • Water, as needed
  • Salt, to taste

For the stuffing:

  • 2-3 medium-sized potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1-2 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • Salt, to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves, chopped

For cooking:

  • Ghee or oil


  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour and a pinch of salt.
    • Gradually add water and knead the mixture to form a soft and smooth dough.
    • Cover the dough and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Stuffing:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, chopped onions (if using), green chilies, grated ginger, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chili powder, garam masala, salt, and chopped fresh coriander leaves.
    • Mix everything well to form a flavorful stuffing mixture.
  3. Assemble and Cook:
    • Divide the dough into equal-sized balls, slightly smaller than a tennis ball.
    • Take one dough ball and flatten it into a small disc. Use a rolling pin to roll it out into a small circle, about 4-5 inches in diameter.
    • Place a spoonful of the potato stuffing in the center of the circle.
    • Gather the edges of the dough and pinch them together to seal the stuffing inside.
    • Flatten the stuffed ball slightly and then gently roll it out again into a paratha, about 6-7 inches in diameter.
    • Heat a tawa or griddle over medium heat. Place the rolled paratha on the hot tawa.
    • Cook the paratha for a minute or so until small bubbles start to appear on the surface.
    • Flip the paratha and cook the other side.
    • Apply ghee or oil on both sides and cook until the paratha is golden brown and cooked through.
    • Repeat the process for the remaining dough balls and stuffing.
  4. Serve:
    • Serve the hot and delicious potato-stuffed parathas with yogurt, pickle, chutney, or any side dish of your choice.

Enjoy your homemade potato-stuffed parathas as a scrumptious and fulfilling meal!
