Steps To Cook :

1. Mix the salt and wheat flour well. Add the milk to it and mix again. Add water little at a time until you get a soft pliable dough.

2. It should make a soft dent when you press your thumb down. Knead well till you get this consistency. Cover and keep aside.

3. Add all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. The potatoes should be mashed and any hard lumps removed.

4. Make lemon-sized balls of the dough and roll into thick discs. Make balls of half the size with the filling and place inside the dough discs.

5. Cover completely with the dough and make into a ball again. Press lightly with the palm of your hand and dust with flour before rolling out into thick flat parathas.

6. Heat an iron griddle and cook the parathas with generous dabs of butter on both sides.

you can even add some chaat masala to the butter before cooking for a different flavour.
