  • pan
  • bowl
  • spatula


  • 3 cups Wheat flour
  • 1-2 large Sweet potato Or 2 small
  • to make the dough Warm water
  • 1 teaspoon Red chili powder Adjust based on our spice level
  • 1 teaspoon Roasted cumin powder
  • 2 teaspoon Amchur powder / dry mango powder
  • ¾ teaspoon Garam Masala
  • to taste Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Oil To make the dough plus more to make the parathas
  • a handful Cilantro Finely chopped
  • for dusting All-purpose flour or wheat flour


  • Wash and peel the sweet potato. Chop them into 1-inch pieces and cook it in the microwave until very soft and mushy. Make sure you use very less water when cooking the sweet potatoes. I usually just sprinkle some water and then cover it with plastic wrap (food grade) and cook it until soft.
  • Using a fork, crush the cooked sweet potatoes and make a paste.
  • Add the crushed sweet potatoes and all the spices along with 1 tablespoon of oil and cilantro and make soft dough adding just enough water. Knead the dough until soft and elastic. Rub some oil on the top of the dough and cover it with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for at least 30 minutes.
  • Make golf ball size balls out of the dough and roll them into a thin circle.
  • Heat a pan and cook the parathas applying a little bit of oil on both sides until golden brown.
  • Repeat the same with the rest of the dough
  • Serve the Sweet Potato Paratha hot with pickle and Raita.
