making kuttu ka atta dough
Boil potato (aloo) till its completely cooked.
Peel and mash the potatoes when still warm.
In a bowl, mix the mashed potatoes, coriander leaves, green chilies and rock salt with the kuttu ka atta.
Add very little warm water like 1 to 2 tablespoons and begin to knead.
Keep on adding little warm water in parts and knead till a dough forms and it stays together. Overall you can use 3 to 4 tablespoons of warm water.
Don't make too smooth or too moist as you won't be able to roll the parathas.
rolling kuttu ka paratha
On a moist cloth, sprinkle some flour lightly.
Take a medium sized ball and place on the cloth.
Fold the cloth and roll the ball with a rolling pin.
Pick up the folded napkin and rotate so you get a round shaped paratha.
While making rotis, you roll it slightly thin and for making parathas you can roll slightly thick. You can use a zip lock bag or a banana leaf also to roll these parathas.
