Sweet Potato Paratha | Roti Paratha Recipes

I love to incorporate veggies in parathas and always do so when I get a chance. Yesterday I made this Sweet potato paratha. Not only did the addition of Sweet potato gave a great taste but it also gave a vibrant color to  the parathas and made it super soft. Also do check out my Methi Aloo paratha and Mooli Paratha.

Ingredients:
Sweet potato - 1 medium sized
Wheat flour / Atta flour - 3 cups
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 3/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp + more for cooking
Ginger paste - 1/2 tsp or less
Water - as needed

Method:
Boil and mash the sweet potato until smooth without lumps. Mix the flour, salt, red chilli powder and cumin powder well. Add the oil and ginger paste and mix until the oil is well incorporated. Add the pureed sweet potatoes and knead to a soft pliable dough sprinkling water as needed. Set aside for 30 mins. Take golf ball sized dough and flatten it with a rolling pin. Make circular parathas dusting with flour. Heat a tawa and place the rolled out parathas on it. When the top of the parathas change color, flip over and spray some oil over it. After about 20 secs flip over and press and rotate the parathas with a kitchen towel. The parathas would puff up. Serve hot with a dollop of butter. The perfect side dishes are curd and pickle.
Note: 1 tsp of red chilli powder may sound like too much of heat but it will countered in the sweetness in the sweet potato. You could also use yogurt instead of water while making the dough.

  41. Hi Krithi, Good Day !
    Coming back after quite some time. Tried this dish today, the paratha was so soft and fluffy. It tasted so good that I need to thank you for the recipe. As you had pointed out, 1 tsp of chilli powder it just right.

  42. I have made this 4-5 times now. Knead in it our bread machine. Always easier than I think. Great recipe. Got the dough resting to go with tandoori for dinner. Yum.
