Potato Parata or Parante ...as said in North India is very famous all over the world now a days. These Potatoes have many good qualities. Potatoes are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins and minerals that protect against cancer and promote heart - health. Like wise, eating potatoes can reduce inflamation. Eating potatoes can increase brain function. Potatoes contain Vitamins C and B complex, potassium, magnesium, zinc and phosphorus.
Wheat flour is rich in fiber, contain Vitamins and it regulates the blood sugar.


Potato Parota can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Even you can have them for snack in the evening time. Remember Potato Parotas are stomach filling. All age group people will enjoy having these Parotas.

Things needed:
Wheat flour : 2 Cups
Potato : 2 ( large )
Chilly Powder : 1/2 Tea spoon
Cummin Seeds powder: 1 Tea spoon
Salt : to taste
Coriander leaves : 4 to 6 sticks
Oil : 3 to 4 Table spoons
Method:
1. Boil potatoes in a pressure cooker for  6 to 8 minutes. leave it for cooling.
2. Wash and cut coriander leaves. Remove the skin of the cooled potatoes.

3. Now take a big bowl, add cut coriander leaves, red chilly powder and jeera. Add potatoes and mix it thoroughly and keep this mixture aside.

4.. Now take a big bowl. Add wheat flour. Add salt and 1 tea spoon of oil and prepare dough with required water and keep it aside.
5. Divide the dough into small balls. Take one portion of the dough and roll a little.
6. Place the potato mixture in the middle and close it from all sides.



7.Roll this with dry wheat flour
(so that it does not stick to the roller) and make parotas.

8. Keep a frying pan on the fire, heat for 1 minute, put 1 tea spoon of oil and cook rolled parota. Turn the other side and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
9. Repeat the same with other parotas too.

 Serve Hot Potato parotas with yoghurt or tomato ketchup.
 Note : Take little (1 to 2 drops) oil and spread it on the chapati before placing the potato mixture)  You can easily stuff the mixture and parota comes out soft and tasty too. Do not overboil the potatoes. You can use ghee instead of cooking oil. Ushing ghee for Parotas will be tasty but not good for health.
Serves :  2 to 3 
Time : 30 minutes for the parotas. (Boiling extra 20 minutes..since you need to wait for the pressure cooker to cool down naturally).
