Making Stuffed Paratha restaurant style: make potato filling; divide dough into 8 pieces; cover all but one of the shaped balls and begin rolling - roll two discs; put filling on one disc; put other disc on top of filling and seal edges (we used a fork); put stuffed paratha on oiled hot tava.

As an experiment, I decided to do one stuffed paratha in the traditional way (or at least I think it's traditional). Procedure: Roll dough out into a disc; put a small amount of potato filling on one half of the disc, fold in half and brush with melted butter, fold in half again, roll out stuffed buttered triangle to about 1/8 inch thick; place on lightly oiled tava at medium heat, turn after it puffs up.
