Author: Vaishali · Holy Cow! Vegan Recipes


  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour or durum wheat flour
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt.
  • Using water , knead into a smooth dough. Set aside.
  • For the filling:
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes , cooked soft. (I just stab it with a knife all over and put in the microwave for about 5-7 minutes until soft).
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 2 tbsp kasoori methi (dried fenugreek leaves available in Indian grocery stores)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp chaat masala (also available in Indian stores)
  • 1 tsp lemon or lime juice
  • Salt to taste


  • Peel and mash the sweet potatoes. Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. The mixture should be fairly smooth and dry.
  • Take a ball of the dough, about the size of a small lemon.
  • Roll it into a disc about 4 cm in diameter.
  • Place about 2 tbsp of the filling in the center.
  • Roll out another disc of the dough to the same size.
  • Moisten the edges of this disc with water and place on top of the disc containing the filling.
  • Press down on the edges to ensure a tight seal.
  • Using some flour, roll out the paratha to about 7 cm in diameter.
  • Heat a griddle and coat with a very thin layer of oil
  • Place the paratha on the griddle and cook until golden-brown spots appear.
  • Flip and cook the other side, applying a little oil if necessary.
  • Serve hot with the cabbage subzi.
