Sweet Potato Flatbread Recipe, How To Make Sweet Potato Flatbread (Sweet Potato Paratha/Roti)
easy, healthy and tasty sweet potato rotis or parathas.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
- 2 cups wheat flour (may need little more)
- 1 medium sized sweet potato
- water enough to cook sweet potato
- salt as needed
- oil (or ghee or butter as needed to cook the flatbread or rotis and to grease the pan)
- extra flour as needed for dusting
Place the sweet potato in a pressure cooker with enough water to cover the sweet potato, close with the lid and cook for 2 whistles or about 10 to 12 minutes of time. Allow the pressure cooker to cool down.
Once the pressure cooker is cooled enough, open the cooker and transfer the cooked sweet potato from the hot water, wait for it to slightly cool down. Once its cooled enough, peel the sweet potato (the skin comes off so easily!), and transfer the peeled sweet potato to a large bowl.
Mash the sweet potato using a potato masher or a large spoon or mash using your hands. It is easy to make the flatbread if you mash it well.
Add the flour and enough salt to the bowl, mix well and knead to make the dough.
If needed, you may add more flour little by little until you are able to form the dough. Let it rest for a few minutes, keep it covered until ready to use.
Once you are ready to make the flatbread, make equal sized balls out of the prepared dough.
Take the first ball, dust it with more flour and roll it in a flat surface using a rolling pin.
Heat a greased pan or skillet (or use a non stick pan) and transfer the rolled flatbread.
Add a little oil (or ghee or butter) cook for about a minute or until the bottom side is cooked.
Flip the flatbread and cook the other side too. Keep the heat in medium and adjust as needed as the pan gets hot. Transfer the cooked sweet potato flatbread to a serving dish.
Similarly roll all the balls and cook all the flatbread. Serve the delicious sweet potato flatbread hot with more butter or ghee or any curry as you wish, or use it for wraps or burritos as you wish!
