Easy Sweet Potato Paratha Recipe and Shortcut. Spicy sweet potatoes are stuffed into a tortilla and fried until golden brown.
Parathas are a thick, unleavened flatbread that usually have a thin layer of delicious filling inside. Originating in northern India where wheat is more plentiful, this dish is full of flavor by way of chiles and spices. They resemble a very thick whole wheat tortilla, but don’t be fooled by their plain appearance, they pack a vibrant, delicious punch!
The quickest way to enjoy parathas is by finding an Indian grocer that carries the frozen ones. These frozen ones are AMAZING! I even did a little hack and made an egg taco out of it to make it a meal.
Another quick way to enjoy these is to make the filling and sandwich the filling between two whole wheat tortillas, like the vendor at the farmer’s market. I highly recommend these two easy ways of enjoying these little nuggets but for the less intrepid, I have included a recipe at the end of this post for the long, hand-made version of paratha goodness.
Parathas are great alone or served with eggs, Keema, Dahl, Jeera Aloo and Raita. Let me know how you served it up!
