Sweet Potato Paratha

Having known the health benefits of sweet potato I make sure to keep it in stock regularly. Sweet potato paratha is easily made besides being delicious and good tiffin material since it can be eaten without any side dish.


400 gms sweet potatoes
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup curd
1tsp jeera/cumin powder
1tsp chilli powder
salt to taste
2 tbs oil
2 tbs coriander finely choppped


  • Wash and cut sweet potatoes and steam. Cool and mash them.
  • Mix the rest of the ingredients and sweet potato well and knead to a soft dough.
  • Keep aside for an hour.
  • Roll out the parathas and fry on a girdle. Add oil or ghee.
  • Serve hot with or without accompaniments.


  1. Sweet potato paratha sounds very delicious to me. I love sweet potatoes

  2. Hey Mary,
    It is delicious. Do give it a shot.

  3. I will try this tmrw. Need one clarification, can we keep the dough for later use? and is the one hour to keep aside necessary?

  4. Hey Fats,
    I always store it in the refrigerator for use later. No probs with that. One hour is not necessary though its ideal in order to get the best of the ferment. 20 mins to half an hour is ok if you need it in a hurry.

  5. I tried this. It was delicious
