Sweet Potato Paratha

I have blogged a lot about the benefits of sweet potato earlier. To add to my list of sweet potato dishes of Podimas and sweet potato fries ,comes Sweet potato paratha.

Healthy afterschool snack or a lunch box idea for kids and kids at heart!

Get ready:

Yields 7 parathas

  • 1 cup cubed sweet potato, cooked
  • 1 cup whole wheat atta
  • 1 tsp sambhar powder
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp olive oil



  • Mash the cooked sweet potatoes well.
  • Add sambar powder, salt to taste and cilantro.
  • Add the atta and knead into a soft dough with 1 tsp of olive oil.
  • No need to add water as the sweet potato has the water.
  • Refrigerate for 20 mins and roll into a paratha/ roti.
  • Heat a tava and cook the parathas on both sides till golden with ghee or oil.

They are perfect for kids lunch box, as they stay very soft.

Both my kids loved this! I hope you all will enjoy it too!
