- A large bowl add the ragi flour, whole wheat flour, chili powder, garam masala, salt, methi leaves and mashed potato. Add water little by little to this to make a soft pliable dough. Add 1 tsp of oil to this and keep covered.
- Make medium to large sized balls from the dough. Roll out the ball of dough gently by dusting with wheat flour.
- Heat a tawa and place each parathas on it. Cook on both sides and add little oil on the paratha. Serve hot with plain yogurt and freshly cut salads.
If equal quantity of ragi and wheat flour is not working for you, add 1 or 2 tablespoons extra wheat flour while kneading.
