    This Indian-styled stovetop bread is a wonderful addition to any meal. However, it has been my humble experience that it goes fantastically with Chef Dave's Roasted Eggplant Soup!

    1. 1

    3. 3
      Add 2 tablespoons of oil, then water.
    4. 4
      Mix until this becomes a defined (albeit sticky) ball of dough.
    5. 5
      Remove and knead until smooth, adding flour or water as necessary.
    6. 6
      Cover dough with plastic wrap and set aside while preparing potatoes.

      When potatoes are finished (tender), remove, drain and mash them with cayenne, salt, pepper, citrus juice, olives and 1 tablespoon of oil.
    8. 8
      Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
    9. 9
      On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into 12-inch long snake and cut into 12 pieces.
    10. 10
      Roll each piece into about 4-inch round.
    11. 11
      Spoon 1-2 tablespoon of potato mixture into round, then fold over edges to enclose completely.
    12. 12
      Pinch dough closed and press down to distribute filling evenly.

      Heat a large cast iron pan over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes.

      These were delicious!!!! The only thing I did really different was in the filling. I sauted 1 small onion and added it to the filling. I dont like olives so I left them out. I chopped the potatoes as charishma did to cut down on cooking time. I used more wheat flour than white flour, and lemon juice for the citrus juice (which worked excellent!!). They were just spectacular! Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful recipe!!

      Splendid! I enjoyed one paratha for lunch with Tomato Ketchup out of the 8 that I made. I did not have cayenne, so I substituted that with 1/2 tsp. black pepper. The citrus juice worked like magic in this(I used lemon). I did not have kalamata olives, hence, omitted those. A humble suggestion regarding the potatoes - I found that if they are chopped before boiling(rather than putting the whole potato in the boiling salted-water), they tend to cook faster! Hence, a great deal of time is saved. Thanks for a great recipe! This will be a sure certain paratha on our table in the coming winter months.

      I assume you roll the parantha again after putting the filling (step 12). It should be about one sixth of an inch thickness. I'll try these with whole wheat flour only, with minimum oil.
