Servings: 810 parathas


  • 2 cups Spelt flour
  • 1 Sweet potato Medium
  • ½ tsp Chili powder (adjust as per taste)
  • ½ tsp Cumin Ground
  • 1 tsp ghee Oil or
  • To taste Salt


  • Boil, steam or microwave sweet potato until very soft. Mash until smooth.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine mashed sweet potato, spelt flour, chili powder, ground cumin, oil and salt. Mix well, add water a little at a time to make a soft, pliable dough. I added about ⅔~¾ cup of water.
  • Cover and set the dough aside for at least 15 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 8~10 equal pieces. On a well floured surface, roll each piece into 5~6" round roti.
  • Heat a griddle or tawa on medium-high heat. Cook each roti until golden brown spots form on both sides. Brush with more oil or ghee, if desired. Serve with a curry or pickle or yogurt.
