Sweet Potato Paratha

Sweet potato - 1 medium sized
Wheat flour / Atta flour - 3 cups
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp(increase according to the spicyess level)
Cumin Powder - 3/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tbspns + more for cooking
Ginger Paste - 1/2 tsp or less(optional)
Water - as needed

Boil and mash the sweet potato until smooth without lumps. Mix the flour, salt, red chili powder and cumin powder well. Add the oil and ginger paste and mix until the oil is well incorporated. Add the pureed sweet potatoes and knead to a soft pliable dough sprinkling water as needed. Set aside for 30 mins. Take golf ball sized dough and flatten it with a rolling pin. Make circular parathas dusting with flour. Heat a tawa and place the rolled out parathas on it. When the top of the parathas change color, flip over and spray some oil over it. After about 20 secs flip over and press and rotate the parathas with a kitchen towel. The parathas would puff up. Serve hot with a dollop of butter or with curd and pickle.
