Aloo Paratha( Potato stuffed Chapathi)

Chapathi flour - 2 cups
Potato - 3
Onion - 1 smal1
Jeera/cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp
Cilantro - few chopped
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 or 2 spoon

Clean and cut potatoes into half. Place in a vessel with water and cook potatoes in a pressure pan/cooker for 2 or 3 whistles...remove, peel and mash.
Heat oil in a kadai/pan add add jeera(or mustard seeds and curry leaves)...when they splutter up add onions and fry till transparent...next add salt, chilli powder and mashed potatoes...mix well and add chopped cilantro...cool and keep aside.

Prepare a soft chapathi dough with chapathi flour, salt and 2 tbsp of oil...cover and keep aside for half an hour.


Take a small size of chapathi dough and roll out...take potato suffing(half the size of chapathi dough)...keep it in the middle...cover or seal it by pulling the edges from all directions...after it is covered...turn it down...dust some flour and roll out as thin as possible....heat a tawa/griddle and when hot add the stuffed chapathi/paratha and cook on medium flame both sides for 1 or 2 minutes...apply some oil/butter for additional taste.
If you cannot suff and roll and then make 2 very small chapathis...on top of one chapathi..keep the suffing and spread lightly...next top it with the other chapathi and cover/seal the two chapathis...so the stuffing do not come out...dust some flour and roll as thin as possible lightly and then cook on a tawa/griddle both sides.
