Easy Sweet Potato Paratha

Easy Sweet Potato Paratha Recipe and Shortcut. Spicy sweet potatoes are stuffed into a tortilla and fried until golden brown.

The first time I had a paratha was at a farmers market in Austin.  The vendor was handing out samples and boy was I Hooked!  I didn’t know it at the time but he took a major shortcut making this dish and I will share it with you:)


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!

Quick Paratha

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!
