My father is a non-vegetarian lover, and feels that the food is only good only till it is North Indian Punjabi style. Not many items in the menu, but to a little richer nature. Some dishes that he likes will somewhere remind you of authentic Punjab food. Lassi is a must. Tari instead of gravy or curry, along with nice Parathas and Rotis.



Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
Salt – a pinch
Oil -1 tsp for kneading the dough
Oil for cooking the parathas

For the stuffing

Potatoes – 2-3
Green chillies -2 seeded
Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
Salt as required
Coriander leaves – handful (finely chopped)
Onion – 1 finely chopped (optional)
Garam masala – 1/4 tsp


* Take 1 cup of flour, add salt, oil, water and knead into a soft dough. Prepare the dough as for roti. Keep it aside. Divide it into 6 equal sized ball.
* Pressure cook potatoes till soft. Peel the skin and mash it well. Add chillies, cumin seeds, garam masala, salt and coriander leaves. Now your stuffing is ready as in picture
* Make 6 equal sized balls out of the stuffing.
* Roll out the dough into small round shape and keep the stuffing on it.
* Seal the dough with the stuffing inside.
