Preparation Time: 40 minutes

Resting Time for the Dough: 3 to 6 hours

Cooking Time: 7 minutes

Servings: 6


  • 3 Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • dash of salt
  • dash of garlic powder
  • 1 3/4 cups of sifted whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 tsp of ground turmeric
  • 5 cilantro leaves (chopped)
  • 3 tbsp of any plain, organic soy based yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp canola oil (or virgin coconut oil)

Directions on how to cook potato paratha:

  1. You can bake and peel the potatoes (or you could alternatively peel and boil the potatoes); then mash them completely.

  2. Combine the other ingredients, except the oil, together.

  3. Now you should knead the dough until smooth.

    If you need to make the dough a little smoother add a small amount of water to achieve a more velvety texture.

  4. Put the dough in a covered bowl and let it sit on a counter for about 3 to 6 hours.

    This will allow more intense flavors to develop.

  5. Preheat a flat griddle and use your hands to roll the dough into small oval balls.

  6. Add a bit of oil to the outside of this dough ball.

  7. Cook on the griddle and use a spatula to slightly flatten the bread as it is cooking.

It is a delicious and more interesting alternative to the traditional breads. You can use the potato Indian bread like the pita bread and eat it with salads or natural sandwich spreads.
