Potato stuffed Indian Bread (Aloo Parathas)

Wheat flour                             2 cup
Potaotes, boiled and crushed  2 large
Onions, finely chopped           1 medium
Green chillies, finely chopped 3-4
Ginger, finely chopped           1 inch
Turmenric powder                   ½ tspn (optional)
Garam masala                          2 tspn
Chilli flakes                             1 tspn
Coriander leaves, chopped      1 spring
Salt as per requirement
Oil /ghee/butter                       4-5 tbspn

Mix the required amount of salt water into the wheat flour to make firm dough (to minimise spilling of stuffing from parathas)
Prepare stuffing by heating oil in wok
Add chopped onions and sauté
Now add finely chopped ginger and green chillies and saute
Now add the crushed boiled potatoes (salt added) and mix them well
Now add finely chopped coriander leaves and garam masala powder and mix well
Allow the mixture to cool before making medium size balls
Stuff this mixture into the small balls of wheat dough by making a deep depression with your fingers and seal it by pinching the dough to cover the stuffing
Roll the dough balls and ensure the stuffing is completely sealed
Now roll the dough balls evenly into circular shapes
Heat a tspn of butter/ghee on the tava/girdle and fry the parathas on both sides
Serve parathas hot with onion curd raita and pickle or sauce
Stuffing can vary by using cauliflower, mixed vegetables, Indian cottage cheese, spinach, fenugreek leaves, onions, raddish etc.
