divide it into lime sized balls and keep aside.
Knead the dough once more and make small lime sized balls .
Take 2 of the dough balls and flatten it into a small circle by rolling with a rolling pin on a dusted surface.
Place a potato ball on one of the rolled out discs and cover with the second disc forming a sandwich .
Pinch the sides so that they stick together.
Now roll this sandwiched dough disc into a thin chappathi like disc.
Heat a tawa and fry the paratha like you would fry a chappathi , smearing with ghee and until you see light brown spots on the surcafe and the paratha is cooked through.
Serve with curd ,pickle and salad.
NOTE: The potato mixture should be dry , do not add any water to it. It will make the dough soggy.
All the components in the stuffing should be chopped very fine , else the filling will break out of the dough when you roll it.
