Stuffed Potato parathas

Potatoes 1/2kg (boiled and mashed)
Chili powder red 1 tsp.
Cumin seed powder white 1 tsp.
Salt to taste
Onion 1 finely chopped
Dry mango powder (anchur) 1 tsp.
Lemon juice 3
Coriander leaves fresh 1 bunch (chopped)
Chillies green 4 (chopped)
Whole meal flour 1kg
Dalda banaspati 1 cup

Put the flour and salt in a bowl and mix together, gradually add water and bind the mixture into a soft dough. Cover with a damp cloth.

Add all the the dry ingredients to the mashed potatoes and mix well. Gradually add the lemon juice. Divide the dough into 18-20 equal parts, shape each portion into a small ball. Roll out the ball to about 4 inches in diameter. Place about one tablespoon of potato mixture and spread it over the dough. Place another same size dough over this, and press the edges together. On a floured surface roll out the dough to about 6-7 inches in diameter. carefully place the round dough onto a hot griddle or pan. Allow to cook for a minute, then turn over. Smear a little Dalda vanaspati on the top and after a minute turn over again. Spread the Dalda vanaspati on the surface and along the edges of the paratha. Repeat the process once again. Remove from griddle and serve hot.
u can use ghee instead of Dalda vanaspati.
