68 SWEET POTATO PARATHA

Sweet potato is an excellent source of Vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) and a very good source of vitamin C, sweet potatoes have healing properties as an antioxidant food. Both beta-carotene and vitamin C are very powerful antioxidants that work in the body to eliminate free radicals. Free radicals are chemicals that damage cells and cell membranes and are associated with the development of conditions like atherosclerosis, diabetic heart disease, and colon cancer. Sweet potato varieties with dark orange flesh have more beta carotene than those with light coloured flesh.

I try make use of this vegetable in many ways and my kids love them when added in parathas as they come out very soft and also this is the non stuff kind.


Sweet potato paratha( Non stuff method)

Wheat flour - 2 cups
Sweet potato - 1 small ( or half of a large one)
Salt as needed
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp ( or cumin powder)
Oil

Wash and cut the potato into half and add water just for immersing and cook in a microwave for 8 - 10 mts. Remove and drain water and run under tap( water). Peel the skin and with a fork press to mash them well.


Take the flour in a vessel and add salt, chilli powder, cumin seeds or powder and mix. If needed can also add some chopped coriander leaves and or chopped onion. Mix well and add the mashed potato when warm itself. Mix and add water little at a time and mix well to knead as a soft dough. Apply a tsp of oil on top and keep aside for 10 mts.

Heat a tava/griddle and take a small ball of dough and roll as chapathi/paratha. Place on the tava and cook both side. If needed add oil/butter. Serve with any of your fav side dish.
