How to make Shahi Paratha Recipe

  1. To begin with Shahi Paratha, first we have to make Lachha Paratha which will serve as the base and later on we proceed by adding other ingredients on top of the Laccha Paratha.

  2. For Lachha Paratha we have to combine wheat flour, maida, salt and oil. Put water slowly and knead to form smooth dough. Cover the dough and keep aside for 15 - 20 minutes.

  3. After resting the dough, divide the dough into 4 portions and make balls out of it

  4. Divide the dough into 4 portions and make balls out of it.Take a ball of dough and roll it into 6 to 7 inches diameter disc on a dusted rolling board.

  5. Apply oil liberally on the paratha disc from the edges start to fold & pleat the paratha till the end. Roll the pleated edges tightly. Join the edges.

  6. Now roll into round parathas of about 4 to 5 inches in diameter, dusting it in flour if required.

  7. Heat the tawa over medium heat and cook parathas from both sides by brushing oil on it. Keep flipping the parathas till it is brown and slightly crisp.

  8. Similarly cook all the parathas and keep it aside. Let it cool.

  9. For the toppings, first peel and mash the boiled potatoes. Put salt, turmeric and red chilli powder in it.

  10. In a pan add oil and as it gets hot add the mashed potato mixture and mix it. Turn of the heat and let the potato cool.

  11. Take gram flour in a bowl put salt and ajwain in it. Slowly add water and mix it to form a thick paste. 

  12. Now the Laccha Parathas are ready to be assembled and transform to Shahi Parathas. Take paratha spread potato mixture on it with a spoon and then spread the a small portion of the gram flour batter over it.

  13. Heat oil in a non stick tawa and place the paratha with the potato side facing down. Cook until the potatoes and the gram flour mixture gets cooked and lightly browned. This would take about 2 minutes. Once done, remove from the tawa and place it in a skillet.

  14. Similarly prepare all the other three parathas. To assemble the Shahi Paratha, place each paratha on the platter with the potato side facing up. Sprinkle the chopped onion, tomato and green chilies. Drizzle the chutneys and yogurt over it and finally top it with sev and coriander leaves.

  15. Serve the Shahi Paratha as a it is for a quick and delicious weeknight dinner.
