Paushtic Roti

BM # 49  Week 2  Day 2

Paushtic Paratha is my Day 2 recipe under the Indian Bread Basket theme. This recipe is also from the treasure of Tarla Dalal. The roti was different, but surely had the flavor of potatoes. It turned out very soft , but somehow I could not roll it as the dough was very soft. I patted it with my hands normally the dough should not be as soft,, but I left it for an hour after kneading and the salt in it must have oozed out the moisture.
So if you make these , make your rotis right away for better rolling, else you can hand toss them like me. The hand tossed rotis looked more rustic and tasted real good.

Paushtic Paratha
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup gram flour
2 boiled potatoes
1/2 cup spinach, finely chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped
1/2 tsp nigella seeds
Few mint leaves
Milk for binding the dough
Mix all ingredients and make a soft smooth dough.
Divide the dough into equal portions, and roll each into a flat disc.
Cook on a griddle with ghee or oil.
