Sweet Potato Paratha

A sweet potato is orange-fleshed high in beta carotene , potassium, vitamins A,C and B-6. In fact, one medium sweet potato has about four times the daily recommended allowance of vitamin A and almost half the recommendation for vitamin C. All of this with no fat, no cholesterol and only about 118 calories per potato.

As they are so less in fat compare to regular potato so i thought to give it a try in parathas..Parathas turned out very nice & soft.You can have this with any sabji or curry of your choice but i like to have it with curd (added salt and pepper) and little bit of pickle..they do taste little bit sweet so you can add green chillies or any spices of your choice while making the dough but i made it without any spices as my 14 month old daughter was also gonna eat this..

Info Source:- Google

Ingredients:-

Sweet Potato:- 1
Whole Wheat Flour:- 1 1/2 cup
Jeera/Cumin Seeds:- 1/2 tsp
Ajwain:- 1/4 tsp
Coriander:- 1/4 cup
Salt as per your taste

Procedure:-

1) Peel of the skin of sweet potato & cut it into big pieces.
2) Take a pan put all the cut pieces into the pan and cover it with a water
3) Boil the potatoes till it become soft..
4) Drain all the potatoes and mash it well..
5) Let it cool completely.
6) Sift the flour in a bowl.
7) Add jeera, ajwain & mashed potatoes.(DO NOT ADD WATER)
8) Mix everything well and make a dough ( if dough is too soft too handle you can add more flour).
9) Let it rest for 5 minutes

TO MAKE A PARATHA

Make a small ball out of the dough, roll it into a flat circle. Heat a griddle and roast the paratha on both side with or without oil ( as per your requirement)..

ENJOY:)
